Many Colors of Red. Mosaic Monday


I held this hibiscus in my hand in the sunshine with the breezes blowing. I snapped about 20 shots, the wind moving the shadows from spot to spot. some were solid when in the shade and to bright in others and these were with moving shadows on them.

huge, beautiful bloom! lucky lady! we can only keep them thru summer and must drag them inside for winter. i tried that one year and they brought all sorts of bugs in, too, so out they went. :)

Deb said...

beautiful just what I needed to brighten my day

Inger said...

Wow! That is gorgeous!

Ruth Hiebert said...

Great pictures. I find red flowers difficult to get good pictures of and these are excellent.

Rebecca said...

Hibiscus make such a strong statement in the garden. Too bad they don't winter over up here.

Susannah said...

Looking at that gorgeous specimen would brighten anyone's day!

Beautiful! I love the addition of the hand, that makes it perfect! Of COURSE since we are alike (what with Baby recently getting so sick), will you pray for our cat Sunny? He has stopped grooming and for the last three days he cannot jump. He tried to jump on the counter and fell. Now he can't even make it to the couch without help. Ever since Cher died, it has seemed like he wants to die. I think he is too young for arthritis. We are taking him to the vet at 4:20.

Pretty! Saw some light pink hibiscus here in SoCal and they look so fragile. Have to take some photos. Golden Woofs

How beautiful!!! We still have a few flowers blooming here in Texas - but not many and nothing compared to yours!
I hope to plant some more of the sturdy flowers we found that worked well last year. Heat and drought tolerant....mostly!

SweetMarie said...

You still have such beautiful color in winter! this flower in the wind reminds me of a little pretty windmill.

Chatty Crone said...

Man that made me feel soooooooooo warm on this cold day - just beautiful!

Rose said...

I am ready to see those in real life!

Linda P. said...

The bloom is such a vibrant colour. Glad you've got a bit of a refreshing breeze as well as sunshine. Here it's blowing a gale around our hills! Have a good day, Sandra.
