It's a long way from Toronto to the Turks and Caicos
I think anyone can use some colour right now so fire up that space heater, angle that floor lamp, slather on some sunscreen, prepare some margaritas and dream a little...
Gorgeous red, orange and yellows. The stamens remind me of eyelashes!
Waxy leaves and bright red florets, can you feel the warmth?
|Big ole hibiscus, nothing subtle!|
|One of my favourites, all texture and colour|
My guess this is from the pea family? The leaves suggest this. The yellow is so bright!
|Nice throat colour in these white plumeria|
Kind of a pinwheel, the petals' edging is cupped and different on these plumeria
