Blushing

This hibiscus, opening outside my den window, is for you, with thanks for celebrating my 200th post yesterday!

Beautiful close-up - the flower looks gorgeous, framed by the shadows.

At least you are not trying to cheat us with this photo (like on some of your previous posts)?

(I spent a good moment checking buildings on the "Venice" photo - and for "nothing"!!!)

Yes, van Gogh was right, but in this particular case I guess your were helped by what we all would consider as an already clearly beautiful motive!

A nice flower. I like these because of their colors and varieties. I like your photo of it too.

Nice shot. I LOVE hibiscus. So many varieties and colors. Plus, that's one plant that will bloom pretty much year 'round down in Florida.
