Shadow play

By CaroleS
A hibiscus from Florida. Apologies for yet another floral offering, but this one had some lovely shadows and I thought it appropriate for shadow Saturday.

My grateful thanks to all who commented and voted on Aquilegia and especially to RonnieAG, achieverswales and mikesmith for their User Awards.
