Is anyone as sick of the blast furnace summer as I am? When I step outside, my skin feels as if it's on fire. The lawn is now browning and heading into dormancy. The flowerbeds are still green, but blooms have been pathetic.
Except for my two hibiscus, which are in shade from late morning on.
The water droplets look so cool and soothing. How deceiving.
The shadows showing through the back of this dinner-plate sized bloom add a spectacular dimension.
And, to think, these gorgeous blossoms come from alien-looking pods. Isn't nature marvelous?
Make it a great day!
