The life of a Hibiscus

A green bud and one ready to unfurl with another partly opened flower in the background

A green bud poking it’s nose out and a new flower waiting to open fully

Opening wide to receive the sunshine and catch the water drops

A bit of purple

The Friendly Friday Challenge: Purple

Sandy would like some purple prose but I am not one for writing prose per se and the prompt – It was a dark and stormy night – the classic opening. Therefor here is my bit of purple, just the one for fun

In the garden

Life in Colour: Purple

The Iris I discovered in a garden in a town we visited last weekend, Tenterfield. It is a town on the Tablelands not far from mine or my besties place. There were some flowers in the gardens but the weather is turning a bit cooler and up on the tablelands it is much cooler than here. When we left home it was 22C, reaching Tenterfield it was 16C with a cool wind blowing.

Some flowers were still blooming while some had had their show.

The hat

Jude asked “Have you any purples In your neighbourhood?”
A hat for all those Steampunk people I found at the Kyogle Markets. (Kyogle is a town on the North Coast of NSW)

A favourite bit purple

Life in Colour May: Purple

Jude want’s to know “What’s your favourite purple Picture?” Perhaps this one? A Blue-banded Bee in a Blue Ginger flower. Blue Ginger flowers vary in colour from a blue to a deep purple depending on the amount of sunlight, soils etc.
