Bloomin' Tuesday! 11/25/08 pt 2

Front deck corner (what I see out my front door)
Before freeze warning
 

Same corner with tender plants on porch (ready to bring in quickly)
Notice the Maroon Maple Sugar Hibiscus
Large pot: Bird of Paradise, running rose, yellow violas (in memory of my MIL), snapdragons, iris and grass; white pot: mint, sweet potato vine, yellow violas, grass, snapdragons
 

When I brought the Maple Sugar Hibiscus inside, I was surprised to see blooms!
They are the same color as the plant. Amazing!
 

Last blooms, the Maple Sugar Hibiscus is really washed out from the flash, it is more like the above picture:)

Beautiful blooms.

Oh a hint on the flash. Drape a tissue or a light-weight white fabric over the flash... it will soften the light.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Lovely blooms! Hurricane Ike destroyed most of my flower beds. Though my paperwhites are starting to bloom!
