bloomin'


The Bunga Raya (Hibiscus) is the Malaysian national flower and my mother has suddenly fallen in love with it. She went to the nursery and brought home several pots. These are the yellow ones. I noticed the red ones sprouting buds today.

That's glorious detail! My favorites are the white ones with the dark red centers.

I'd never looked at hibiscus that closely, the pistils look like little planets, what a fantastic macro!

The news is not so good in Avignon, more like nuclear pollution :-(

I have to say I'm usually not so fond of flower close-ups, but this one is just fantastic. Nice job!
