WW: Pink Hibiscus Flowers at Serendipity

Pink Hibiscus Flowers Photo
"Summer is the time when one sheds one's tensions with one's clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit. A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all's right with the world."
- Ada Louise Huxtable

I usually remember August as being sweltering, but this year the weather has been wonderful! Ogre and I wanted to enjoy lunch by the water last weekend, so we visited Serendipity for the first time together. The waterfront restaurant overlooks the Indian River Bay in Oak Orchard, Delaware. I was delighted to join several pink hibiscus plants in soaking up the beautiful view from the back deck.

  14. A very memorable flower for me. In my country we call this gumamela. We pound it and add it to soap and use it to do those big bubbles! They make the bubbles sturdier and thats how we play when I was young! #ww
