Hi Herman, we seem to be on the same upload schedule each day....yours in the morning, mine late at night. Kind of a coincidence (some say there are no coincidences) that we both put out totally different flowers with the same colors.

I quite like your untidy hibiscus. Great colors....tidiness can get so dull.

A superb shot, Herman, love the colours, wish I had it in my garden ... Carol

Sadly last week I was holding onto our lilac coloured Hibiscus so I could lean over and cut out a wayward cotoneaster stem, when I felt it move in the ground. I stood back and gently pulled down and it shot out of the ground. After hubby cut it up, I counted the rings in the main trunk and there were 42 of them. Had flowered every one of the 18 years we have lived here, except for last year when all the buds started opening, then just died. Sad Luckily I have two in pots that self seeded.
