Red and Pink Hibiscus


Each day, awakening, are we asked  to paint the sky blue?  Need we coax the sun to rise or flowers to bloom?  Need we teach birds to sing, or children to laugh, or lovers to kiss?  No, though we think the world imperfect, it surrounds us each day with its perfections.  We are asked only to appreciate them, and to show appreciation by living in peaceful harmony amidst them.  The Creator does not ask that we create a perfect world; He asks that we celebrate it.  ~ Robert Brault

Hibiscus, Gumamela, Tapolanga

This tropical plant is abundant here too and has great uses. Did you know that the dried flowers can be made into juice for high blood pressure?

Both colors are pretty! I have seen yellow too.

I love this flower for its simplicity and color variations... I have seen a lot of cross-bred here, so beautiful too.
