Hibiscus Bloom

The intensity of color in the hibiscus is quite breath taking.  And every time I see these blooms I'm reminded of a Dr. Suess creation!  How delicate, beautiful, and comical is the mind of the Creator! 
There's something quite celebratory in it, and it "cried out" to me to be remembered with a portrait!

It really is beautiful, Helen. I am not making the connection with Dr. Seuss, though I am intrigued by the thought. I will have to look it up!

Thanks Sherry! It's just the overall shape and appendages that remind me of a Dr. Seuss creation! Hibiscus always make me smile!
