A fourteen blossom day

Hi everyone,

Something for the eyes today. Each year we buy two hibiscus plants, one for each end of the pool. This year we were disappointed with what we could find but bought a pair anyway. They looked rather scrawny and for a week or two produced only one or two blossoms each day.

Now they’ve hit their stride and we’re loving them. Yesterday one plant had six blossoms and the other produced eight. It’s a wonder of nature that these magnificent blossoms only last a few hours, from sunup to sundown in a single day.
