Red Hibiscus



Posted by Picasa

We had more rain again last night, another 1.5 inches, we are having flooding here in Iowa, hot and humid still, I do not remember another summer like this one.

That looks just like mine. It's blooming its flowers off right now cause it's been flooding every afternoon since Saturday.

The hibiscus has been a favorite with me, and a great photo topic.Nice to have you onboard on the prairie.I am in Ottumwa, but get all over the state.I have a set of numbered prairie stories taken from interviews I do with my travels. I also post around my experiences and travels. I like to work with reclamation and restoration projects with our prairies.Like the boxer you have pictured, must be getting old. I showed them for 25 years, perhaps you have a similar bloodline.

Thanks for stopping by one and all.

Out on the Prairie, thanks so much for helping restoring Iowa's beautiful prairies.

My boxer is getting old, he will be 12 soon, he is my 3rd boxer, and the 1st one to make it past 10 I adopted him from rescue so am unsure of his bloodlines.

Really nice photos of the hibiscus. I used to grow these in white pink and deep red like yours, after 4-5 years the bugs(caterpillars) ate them up and they died out.

oh man i used to have a hibiscus plant. it wasn't anywhere near this spectacular. it was the kind of pale orange of circus peanuts. yours is beautiful.
