Default Young and Old:The cycle of life

This is an archival shot of the beginning and ending stages in the life of hibiscus flowers. Hibiscus flowers usually last for only one day thus the cycle of life does not lasts very long for these flowers.

Nice picture. Do some hibiscus varieties last longer than others? There's a bush in my local botanical gardens that seems to have blooms that last longer, or else it blooms for longer than some other bushes they have.

Mtngal,

Thanks for your comments. Some varieties do bloom longer than the one day. Many of the endemic (native) varieties here only last one day.
