Really. In spring, the hibiscus will have terry and simple five-petal flowers.
Fine photo.

Beats me, EM. There are only two people in the world that know less about horticulture than I do, and I want to keep it that way lest I get dragooned into garden duty .

Thanks - I've no idea what she used. In fact, she had to remind me what the plant was before I posted the pic .

I appreciate the kind words - the FA 31 was my Christmas present and I'm still getting accustomed to it, but it can serve up some nice bokeh.

C'mon, Susan - haven't you heard that old saying: "hiatus is where the hibiscus is?"

Actually, it took me a moment to absorb how your reply related to my OP . Then I noticed my title; why'd those people put the "i" and the "o" next to each other on the keyboard, anyway?
