    Default A couple Hibiscus blooms to brighten up your day ...

    Haven't posted this recently so figured you could handle seeing it again. I've had this one for 4 or 5 yrs now, I think....
    My botanical "satellite dish"



    It really is this bright when the sun is glaring off it.

    I could have a dozen...I love hibiscus flowers! That is one lovely color...i'm guessing the hummingbirds can find that bush easily enough.
