Hi Bonnie, I used to have that color of gumamela, it was given by Dad but unfortunately my dogs destroyed them boo hoo...and it's my favorite. Glad to know that you grow it and thanks for sharing.

Very pretty. I do not think I have seen colored like that.

So lovely colors indeed. I like the angle you took this shot, excellent macro.
Have a great weekend!

Gorgeous colours! As I was gazing at it, I realized the upper petals have been damaged, and you can almost see through them! That adds to the appeal of the photo, for me!

Hibiscus are simply beautiful...they have their own charm. BTW, thanks for giving us the name of the flower in post.

What an absolute gorgeous color of your hibiscus.

It's like peaches and cream ice cream.

I use a wordpress template so I don't think there is a popup option. But feel free to visit anyway.

I remember that flower in our neighborhood in Philippines, we call it Gumamela. And here in US and other countries in the Northern part, they call it, Hibiscus. Interesting.

BTW, my first time to join your Meme. I'm Mel COle of Pennsylvania, USA. :)

Gorgeous color, great shot!

Marilyn said...

Your hibiscus is similar to one my brother had blooming yesterday! We live in Colorado and have some that are winter hardy-zone 5. It sounds like we are on opposite sides of the earth. ♥♫
