Not wanting to surrender to a certain fate, this flower hangs on as the weather cools and the days become increasingly shorter. The details and color are something to behold.

  1. It’s a beauty Mike! I do love the hibiscus flower and not just because it is so lovely. i grew up in Florida and it reminds me of home. I planted one here in rural Virginia this spring but the deer made short work of it.

  2. I’ve never grown these … so pretty!
    It’s such a time of change. Tree leaves are turning but my potted flowers are still blooming.
    Fabulous riding weather though 🙂

  3. So pure looking. I would never guess this was taken recently. We’ve just come thru our first Arctic Vortex, a week long, bone chilling. Thanks for warming things up, I felt a wee thaw when I saw this stunning photo.

    • When I posted it, many weeks ago, it was recent. Now that hibiscus is in a nature induced deep sleep. No, more like a death scene. Good thing it has relatives that will appear in the spring.

      • Oh yes, now I see the date. Sadly (or gladly) there is this crooked little path that I weave around WP. I tend to find my way around sooner or later but it’s a bit fickled. That’s just how I roll, LOL
