Back Yard Flowers

Carol's been at it again with the digital camera. This time her subject matter wasn't birds; it was flowers.

I'm only going to give you a few samples. I don't have time this afternoon do do a web page layout like I sometimes do.

First, a pink hibiscus:

And here's a close up of the pistil.


Then she moved over to a white hibiscus:

Don't you love the center?


And finally, here's a shot of a flower found in MOST back yards:


Most people try to get rid of the dandelions, but that bug sure seems to like this one.

Your dandelions appear to have finer petals than ours over here. Or maybe that's just my eyesight.

LOL

I love hibiscus (and bougainvillea) and try to have them on my deck every summer. Yours are beautiful. I think dandelions should be cultivated so they are no longer considered weeds. Some vacant lots look all the better for the bright bursts of sunshine that are dandelions!
