Instagram Friday

While I was sewing my placemats at my parent’s house, I had to take a quick break to snap a few shots of this Rose Mallow in their garden. These plants are part of the Hibiscus family (love those!), and the blossoms are incredible. This one was larger than my head, probably about 10 inches in diameter! How can you help but smile when you see one of these enormous blossoms!?

Even the buds are huge! Like the size of golf balls!

And here’s a Gerbera from my backyard – I love this bright red-pink color!

Have a wonderful weekend!
