I couldn't think of anything to write about today so I thought I would post pictures of a couple of Hibiscus flowers that just started blooming today.
it's amazing how fast they bloomed yesterday they were just a bud.
the largest flower is 9 inches across, I measured it. It's hard to imagine how something that big is packed into a bud this small
a close-up of its innards shows how complicated a flower really is.
it's amazing to me how something this delicate can survive the wind and rain and other hardships it has to endure. but somehow it manages to survive Colorado's brutal winter and produce flowers like this every year.
