SAN GERALDO HAS COMPLETED THE transplanting on the terrace. One of the new hibiscus (had a new flower yesterday and it’s amazing. When we brought the plant home, the single open flower was beginning to fade. We had no idea how much more vivid it could be. There’s some other activity, as always, on the terrace, including the other two new hibiscus in bloom this morning. I hope it makes your day a little brighter.

Cuando trajimos la planta a casa, la única flor abierta comenzaba a desvanecerse. No teníamos idea de lo mucho más vívido que podría ser. Hay otra actividad, como siempre, en la terraza, incluidos los otros dos nuevos hibiscos en flor esta mañana. Espero que haga tu día un poco más brillante.

Wonderful colors, they really brighten up the indoor space.
They’re outside but we’re attempting to rearrange the terrace so they can be seen the minute you enter the apartment.
Your header photo/Norway is wonderful.
The first hibiscus is lovely. I don’t think I have ever seen a ‘double’ one.
Nothing like blossoms to brighten one’s day.
Norway IS wonderful. I don’t know which header photo you saw, since they’re set to randomly change. Double hibiscus are mixed in with the others all over town. Our local flower kiosks tend not to carry them, which is one of the reasons we went up to the garden center. Although they had a lot of hibicuses, that was the only color with the double-blooms. They’re stunning.
we need a dose of pretty in this dark hour.
We sure do. I wish this were all it took.
Love the splashes of color. It makes lockdown a little prettier!
Wish we could simply blanket the world in this.
Such a riot of beautiful colours!
And this is what we see all over town, too.
they are lovely aren’t they. I miss having some.
They’re everywhere in town. Fronting private homes and apartment buildings, on terraces. And the city plants them as hedges. I’ll be sure to share photos of them from my walks.
It makes life so much better.
Hibiscus–when they send out the flowers–so bright and vivid–really captures your attention and heart.
What is the plant in your header photo? Love that second photo of it trailing out of the container.
That’s Echeveria “Raindrops” Hybrid.
Your “hibiscuits” (as I called them when I was a wee gel) are just gorgeous. As are all your plants.
Thanks for sharing them with us.
i didn’t know about hibiscus when i was young enough to screw it up. I still screw up rhododendron. I thought it was road-a-den-DRUM, and that’s still what I want to say.
Looking good! It’s nice to see your flowers — more tropical (or sub-tropical) and sun-loving than ours.
We can grow the same things here (and see them everywhere) that we grew in San Diego. But I’ve never seen so many hibiscus in one place.
Those hibiscus are beautiful! They don’t survive here but I might just but one even for the season and maybe bring it indoors over winter. Flowers are such food for the soul
So many people have written about wintering over tropical plants. My mother often did that with plants she had on her balcony.
So nice to see when we look out our windows and doors.
The hibiscus is stunning! Still, I really get into the flowers on succulents. They can be so subtle and beautiful. Enjoy!
We love the drama and surprises of the flowers on succulents. But also want the immediacy and grandeur of plants like hibiscus and amaryllis.
