Fragile Canvas

Today I saw a Hibiscus bush, loaded with blossoms, at the end of a driveway. Some were blooming and some were wilted in the summer heat; while others were shrivled back into a roll. I am always drawn to these beautiful flowers, so I had to stop and take a couple of photos with my iPhone. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Bits of sunlight art

Sprinkled on  fragile canvas

For my eyes only

Rolled up // stored away at dusk

Tomorrow it will be gone

Rich Impressions

Down the street at 1033
red hibiscus flowers grow;
Climbing up the mailbox post…
Putting out blooms for a day
before wilting away.
Rich red hues in morning sunshine…
show the world that one day of beauty
is enough to remember for a lifetime!
