Double Hibiscus

Summer of 2007.

Harvey, our bichon, thought there was a two-eyed monster by the back fence and barked at these white hibiscus one dusky evening. I had to walk up to the plant and give the flowers a shake to show him they were harmless!

Wide as large saucers, white and red hibiscus were blooming in the front and back yard. A second hibiscus opened up right next to the first and created this image of a double bloom.

I've since moved all the hibiscus plants to the backyard so they wouldn't have to bend and stretch to get the full sun.
