Perfect Timing!

Yesterday morning I walked out into the garage and I spied from the window what to me was “Perfect Timing”!

My pink Hibiscus had decided to grace us with her beautiful blossoms.  “Perfect Timing” for Pink Saturday.

Doesn’t she have such mystical, magical, tropical beauty?

See that blossom peeking inside the window?  That’s the one that tempted me to wander outside for a better look.

At the base of the plant I noticed that my hot pink rose had decided to put on another show with her new blooms.

As beautiful as she was, and yes I really do appreciate her.   I hate to tell her, but I think the Hibiscus stole the show!

Wishing you lots of lovely blossoms in your gardens my friends!

The blooms did steal the show. How big are the flowers I wonder? Hibiscus are my favorite flowers. Thank you for a beatiful Pink Saturday post.

Hi my sweet friend!
Your hibiscus is beautiful! It clearly loves living in Alpine, Utah! When I lived in Hawaii I had a large hibiscus bush in my side yard. It's blooms would peek in my window. I love hibiscus tea...It's petals are tart and have a lovely flavor.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend, Jann!
Blessings,
Carolynn xo

When I posted my link on Beverly's, I didn't see your pink until my pink posted. I'm Link #40. It made me smile to see those pink beauties showing their style.

Your hibiscus is beautiful - but I do think, in the last photo of the rose, she really did make an exclamation as to her own beauty!

Happy Pink Saturday!

The hibiscus is such a fabulous flower--big, dramatic blooms without a lot of fussing. Love the red veining in this one.
