Mother Nature’s Wonders–Cee’s Flower of the Day Photo Challenge

Flower of the Day–Hibiscus

I am crazy about Hibiscus, so my contribution to this week’s Cee’s Flower of the Day is this beauty. Cee showed the edges of her Dahlia, and I found the color variation on the edges of this Hibiscus interesting.  Enjoy, and join the flower brigade found at her site.
