A Little bit of this and that.

Good Evening, just wanted to let you see my Hibiscus again remember I let you see pictures of it a few weeks ago well this is what I came down to this morning is'nt it beautiful I am so pleased with this plant this is the third time of flowering in less than a year.  You can see outside on this picture it was taken during a downpour and the wind was blowing really hard to it was quite a mini storm, the two young lads across the road were out trying to repair a car and they were soaked to the skin and to make matters worse they have an empty garage thought it was silly but who am I to judge.  Have been out and about the last few days as the weather has been a lot nicer in fact until the rain at teatime it was dare I say it Spring like. Will leave you with another picture of my prize plant I was trying out the macro setting on my camera and I was pleased with the result. Goodnight and God Bless. Love Joan.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures with us Joan and brightening my evening. Here's hoping the weather will be extra kind to us soon - lots of bidwatching and capturing wildflowers on camera if that happens. Take care my friend.
