Macro Monday - Hibiscus.

A quick post today - we had almost 600 people come and view our garden over the weekend as part of a garden design festival and fund raiser.  Its strange to have so many people wandering about in your garden, taking pictures and generally having a good look about!

I need a sit down and a glass of wine!

This hibiscus was a flower on the bush under which I first saw the Hoopoe (see last post!)


I dont post too many flowers, but I rather like this!

Enjoy the other close ups!

(PS: if you follow my other blog, a new post will pop up within the next day!)  SM

Stewart, you must have a beautiful garden if everyone wants to come and see it. Love the hibiscus! And yes, I would like to see more of your garden to since I missed the garden tour. Happy Sunday!

Nice of you to share (with the tour participants and with us)! We've been on a few of those tours and I always wondered how it felt to the hosts after it was all over! I figured about like what you said!
