When I turned the corner into the dining room and saw this exquisite bloom, my stress melted away. Hibiscus blooms are one of my favorites, I love their delicate crepe paper appearance with the strong sword of their gorgeous reproductive organs(their yellow stamen and their red pistil) boldly jutting out for all the bees, humming birds and butterflies to see.

I love having seasonal blooms outside their season in my house, it makes me feel like the best gardener in the world.
