Elephant Ears, Ferns, Hibiscus Oh My


I can't seem to help myself when it comes to the sun pointing out the leaves and flowers and ferns in our yard. Each time I take a photo of it I come inside and put it on my desktop to keep that moment alive...


I took the week end off from comments/posting just so you know.


Same Flower, Same Day,  Different times,
Above at 7:43 AM with flash and below at 10:43 AM with sun.

it looks like two different flowers but it is not
the flowers start folded and each hour they change and open wider and wider.

Spring has sprung! I'm seeing little bits of green poking through the soil--daylilies and irises.
