Hibiscus looks passionate to my eyes even when it is pure white. It contains passion which is shown by the "spicy scarlet" like a bride containing passion within dressed in pure white. I like your photo and this Hibiscus. Have a nice week.

Beautiful shadow shots, dear heart.

If you like the taste of mixed berries...strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, you will love these pink oreos..I just KNOW it.:))

A flower is not necessarily large. Yet they provide a style and elegance that stretches far beyond its size. Likewise for shadows, the interior of the leaves is stunning in shadow that follows the creases and shape. Absolutely wonderful, as fine capture!

The hibiscus looks good enough to eat! However, since it's not really made for food, I'll content myself with a feast for my eyes!

I LOVE MY SHADOW

I love my shadow,
My shadow loves me;
We chat together
And don’t disagree!

My shadow and I
Prefer not to shout
As we go walking
And rambling about.

My shadow’s so wise,
I ask what she thinks;
She’s happy to share,
And then nods and winks.

My shadow and I
Are best buds, you see;
That’s why we try hard
To always agree!

Oh Mickie, these close-ups are so very stunning! You awesome blog always take me to a happy place. Thanks for sharing such beauty!

You and your beautiful hibiscus blooms...the just get prettier and prettier. My little plant is growing strong though the blooms come and go in one day. It goes through some dry periods, but then faithfully starts putting out blooms again. Sorry I have been off the computer, but I tore ligaments in my right knee. Not only did the laptop put pressure on it when I had it in my lap, it hurt to bend it while sitting at the table. Consequently I dropped off of the radar for a bit. Bud is home safe and sound and I will post the final photos this week. Hope all is well with you and your family. genie

These are beautiful Mickie!
My white hibiscus took a beating in the hurricane, and now with the heavy rains we are getting today through Thursday. Luckily, there are lots of buds left, so hopefully....

Thank you so much for sharing this today at The Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful evening!

Hello,
I visited your blog tonight - I saw you on The Old Geezer Blog. Your photos are so lovely and full of life!! I love the rose pictures. It seems that you appreciate the beauty in life, and your lens shows it. Me and my daughters just started a new blog, and it is similar to yours, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would really enjoy coming back to visit with you and seeing all your beautiful photos. Hope to hear from you, and have a lovely week.
