Floral Friday: Hibiscus

I'm back from Florida and boy did I see some pretty flowers and sunshine!  Many areas of the country haven't seen much sun as of late.  

Check out these beautiful red hibiscus my cousin, Melanie has in her front yard.  The color striation is gorgeous.

Later in the week, we saw pink hibiscus at the marina.  The petals look like they are made of crepe paper. 

I love taking pictures using my macro setting...it makes me look like I know what I am doing.  These are straight from the camera. 

   
MAKE IT A GREAT DAY!

I will be linking this to Photo Feature Friday. Hop over to enjoy some beautiful photography and to pick up some tips.
