Yellow Hibiscus

I have been stalking my mother's hibiscus since the first bud started to show in late November.  Because the buds were in peach, I was expecting a peach-colored hibiscus.


I was pleasantly surprised when it bloomed into a lovely shade of lemon yellow.

a surprise.” ~ Vera Nazarian
