Another Hibiscus

Sunshine Macro Monday #34

It has been a good flowering of the Hibiscus plants in my garden. I think I have posted a few for Macro Monday of the exotic flowers in the past. This one is an Australian Hibiscus from cuttings of a plant that was at my besties old place. The garden there had plants from the early days of the previous occupants of the early 1920’s. This is the first flower of the plant.

It’s raining

Here we go with a multiple photo challenge post again
The main object of the photos I took today were for Sunshine’s Macro Monday #30
and then I thought this is a good one for Jez’s Water Water Everywhere #16 inspired by his photo of red water droplets
Looking at my notifications I saw that Bren’s Photo for the Week – 57 – Flowers also fitted in for this series of images taken during another wonderful rain shower this morning.

Hibiscus deception again

Sunshine’s Macro Monday #27

This time I won’t tease about the colour of my Hibiscus flower. This tree is in not the best spot but has managed to survive for quite a number of years. Some seasons, it has lots of flowers, other times it is sparse.
Recent rain and hot weather has seen a few flowers appear. It is much different to the other Hibiscus in the garden.

Here is the bud

Remember last weeks photos. A red bud with a pink flower!!!

 

So you have your guess ready?

 

 

 

Here is the flower. 20200203_blog challenge_macro_hibiscus flower

How many people would have guessed correctly? I was amazed when I saw the bud as I have seen the flowers lots of time.
