Flower Friday Hibiscus again



A lonely red hibiscus on our bush, catching the early morning sun. No leaves, only sticks, and still it blooms. About 3 inches across.

NOTE: yesterday weigh in was down 2 more pounds and a total loss of 41. woo hoo and patting myself on the back.

Orange Hibiscus the size of salad plates found at Home Depot.


La Gogh, eat your heart out, if it's Baroque I can fix it, or just let it Gogh.

The orange one is perfect. Your little survivor looks like velvet. Even with no leaves, how it thrives!!! It is a wonder. Hurrah!!! I would be doing more than patting you on the back if I was there. You GO!!! You are as wondrous as your little hibiscus!

We are so glad to hear Jake is feeling better ... maybe he'd like some sardines too. Oh only packed in water of course.
Congrats on the continued weight loss and you know I love that red flower

I find it very hard to take photos of red flowers. You've done well with the hibiscus! And congratulations on the weightloss, I know it feels great because I did pretty much the same 3-4 years ago.
