The letter H - Hibiscus, Heritage, Huge flower , Macro Monday



The motherplant of this has been in a friends family for a very long time. i recently got a plant from it ans I was worried it would not survive so now I'm very happy as this one turned up. It's lovely and its huge, 17 cms (about 7inch) across. Unfortunately Hibiscusflower only last for a day or two. Visit Macro Monday

I didn't know the hibiscus can be so adaptable and bloom in Sweden! Beautiful colour and good macros.
