Photo Of The Week: Texas Star

Blog

A close-up of a Mexican Hibiscus,  perhaps more popularly known as the Texas Star. It’s hard to miss with its brilliant, vibrant red petals. The bloom measures up to a foot across.  I’m particularly drawn to the back of the huge bloom because of its innate symmetry.  The tiny bug  was a bonus.  These flowers are one day wonders. They bloom when the sun hits them in the morning and drop off at sunset. They reseed themselves and can become quite invasive.  Hard to resist though because of that color.  Thanks for the look and have a good week.
