Ruby Tuesday / Red Hibiscus



I found this beautiful red hibiscus on the edge of a bamboo grove at the Los Angeles Zoo last week. The blurred background is bamboo.

There is something so special about hibiscus. My folks had a huge red/purple one in their backyard years ago. It was just positively lush.

What a beautiful flower. As we go further into Autumn in New England, the bold colors of paradise keep us warm...until the first snow!
