Erin Rachel Triple Slam

Just a quick update on the 'new girl' of the hibiscus clan, who was truly blooming her heart out yesterday (7/10/07). I wonder how often we'll actually be able to get such perfectly aligned shots of a multiple bloom, so of course Fernymoss had to capture this while it lasted. Today these were all drooping and getting ready to drop, however two new fresh ones popped open to take their places. Though I often sigh and lament about how fleeting hibiscus flowers are --since they last merely a day-- the good thing is they're such prolific bloomers that we quickly forget and look forward to what slightly different beauty will follow ....

And have I mentioned yet how much we are just loving this particular hibiscus? LOL

That is beautiful, IVG and Fernymoss. You're right on the perfect alignment. The colour is just outrageous ... I can see why you were so excited about Erin Rachel.

That's pretty cool - the receding blooms suggest a work of art.

Thanks very much. I was kind of proud of that one.
