Flower Photo: Red Hibiscus Flowers

Red Hibiscus Photo By Aquariann

Before I retreated to the rocks and waterfalls of the mountains on an anniversary vacation last week, I took a late summer stroll around a friend's yard to photograph her garden. My favorite were the hibiscus flowers spilling over the back yard's gate. As you can tell, my camera doesn't cooperate with the color red, especially on sunny days. I feel like I captured a waking dream about the flowers instead of what they truly looked like, but the petals are pretty in any light. Please follow me on Instagram @aquariannart if you want to see a more realistic white hibiscus flower from the same yard that I'm posting later.

How To Plant Your Own Post for Flower Friday:
The only rule to play is that you can only add one link per week! The post doesn't even have to mention flowers, but only ones that do will be eligible for being picked as a feature next week. I will be sharing my flower image on other blog hops, namely Wordless Wednesday, and welcome all family-friendly links from fellow bloggers. Crafters can even link up an Etsy listing or other shop product! But if you want to promote a prize, I suggest adding it to my Giveaway Chest Linky instead to entice more treasure hunters.

Please follow my blog through any of the social media icons in the upper right sidebar to receive a reminder to return next week. Adding my button or a text link to your own blog and sharing to your followers is also a fairy appreciated way to help my hop grow.

Flower Friday

Other flower hops where I've planted my post this week include Floral Friday Fotos, I Heart Macro, Saturday Show Off and Today's Flower.
