Hibiscus ~ my fav. flower :-)

I luv Hibiscus. When I was in elementary school, my mother used to take me to Tropical islands for summer vacations, and Hibiscus was the one I remembered the most. For a kid, the flower looked BIG & Beautiful! lol. When I think of Guam, I think of plumeria & bougainvillea more but hibiscus has been my most fav. Tropical Flower. Now, of course, we don't have those beautiful flowers here BUT I was very surprised that they SELL these flowers here! I even saw a lady buying a couple of pots of hibiscus at the grocery store where I was. I couldn't resist to take some pictures. And these are the ones. I'm also adding the yellow one which I took a picture at my friends' house a couple of days ago. I know, they aren't by the beach... oh well... Red hibiscus was the first one to remember from my childhood but aren't they all so pretty?? :-)

I love hibiscus,too!When I was little, I saw them I'm no long living in Taiwan. There are way less hibiscus around. I did grow one as house plant and it died after three blooming years, sadly. Maybe it's time to get a new plant! TFS!!
