Hibiscus Bud for Straight Out of The Camera Sunday

My Hardy Hibiscus is just producing buds at this moment in time.  I am sometimes fascinated with the bud as well as the flower.  I like the lime green colour of the bud and foliage.  This plant is called Luna Blush and it has a very large saucer size bloom that is mostly white with a pink centre.   I will probably post it when it blooms.   For now join Murrieta365 for more Straight Out of the Camera shots.  Join us with your photo that is unedited with the exception of a crop.   Happy Sunday.  Valerie

Don't you love the anticipation flower buds bring? I love your photo! I don't remember what kinds I have, but one of them is just a little ahead of yours.

Oh, pretty soon you shall have gorgeous and huge flowers! I now have three bushes and they have all been flowering. Keeping them hydrated in these heatwaves and drought is quite a chore

I love hibiscus, would love to see this in bloom.
I find the bud is sometimes more beautiful than the flower. Wonderful macro Val.

What a gorgeous color green and such lovely details! My neighbor grew hibiscus for a while, but it really isn't meant for a climate that has snowy winters. She used to live in Israel, and I think she misses the more tropical flowers that grow there.

I am excited to see how beautiful the hibiscus would be once it bloom.

My SOOC Sunday post is up HERE.
Fascinating detail in this bud! Amazing that the bud is so green and the n changes to a bright alternative colour!

I am very surprised at how hardy hibiscus are. A good friend's made it though last winter's ice storm and one of the coldest winters we've had in years.

Looking forward to seeing the bloom on Miss Luna Blush. :D

Great photo!

The six hills giant nepeta is floppy also but we put a little wire on stakes in behind it to hold it forward but I noticed today all the rain we are having now caused some to fall in behind it.
Thank you for visiting,

Carolyn

Whata lovely shot! That color is stunning! It looks very good, straight out of the camera. What a fun meme that sounds like!
Thanks for stopping by to see me.

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
