Default One more hibiscus

First time I am catching this, the pink variety that bloomed this morning.

Beautiful colored flower Raghu. I would love to see that against something other than the brown dirt....

Thank you, Jim, Alex and Saly. Saly, I planted one each of four varieties of hibiscus only recently, and the plants have just begun to stabilise and sprout one or two buds. At this stage, since the number of flowers is just one at a time, I do not want to pluck them. Once the plants grow to a height, you can see the camera shifting away from the soil. Here is a shot of the whole plant, so you can see how small it is!

That's a coincidence Raghu, I thought of you yesterday, when I noticed that our Pink Hibiscus was displaying 2 flowers. Now it seems your's bloomed at the same time. Lovely photos. I find that yellow Hibiscus amazing, as I have never seen them in that colour before.

Thanks John. Every time the yellow blooms (4 times as of now), to me it appears like a small cheerful child with a big head! Would like to see your flowers.
