Summer in Australia holds absolutely no interest for me with its persistent heat but the blooms this heat encourages, well, that’s a totally different story. {sigh}







The Humble Hibiscus (MM2-10)

On seeing this image my opinion of the humble hibiscus was immediately elevated to super-model with my sincerest apologies for having EVER doubting her!
