Simply beautiful! They thrive in hot tropical country like mine and bloom all year long. By the way, the Hibiscus is the National Flower of Malaysia, our next door neighbour.

Beautiful collection of nature photos, the colours are delightful. Shame flowers like these can't last longer, they sure brighten up the garden.

wow, I love hibiscus. Your flowers are stunning. :)

I noticed earlier that you used to link up with Creative Exchange. Now I am starting a meme that will be similar to CE. I will start slowly with only text links. For now I have a testrun up. And then I plan to start with the first one on Monday. You are welcome to check it out and maybe join in the test if you have something. Welcome!

These are exquisite! That little bee thing is tiny, isn't it?

Be careful today, Mickie, it looks like you guys have nasty storms heading your way.

Hugs,

It’s difficult to choose one favorite color, but today I’m in the mood for the soft yellow one. I feel as if being drawn into the flowers. You know the way how to make flowers look most attractive, Mickie.

Sorry for this late response. Since my daughter lives within 15 minutes’ walk, she sometimes has dinner with us parents when her husband is out of town or comes home late, but it will end soon as she is going to start working again from next Monday after half a year interval. I like to see them getting along well. How about your newly-married daughter?
