Who would never recognize the very familiar Hibiscus or commonly known to Filipinos as ‘gumamela’, the friendly neighborhood flower. Why I said that? Because it’s easily grown, have many varieties and uses. Varieties are in color of red, yellow, orange, pink, white, purple and combination of these colors. As a kid I used gumamela leaves as ingredient for my home-made bubbles.
My first entry in Today's Flowers' in my other blog was a multi-layered hibiscus with a somewhat yellowish orange color which was shot in Bicol. This very simple home-grown red hibiscus is my mom’s own flower. I passed by its pot and noticed that it has recently bloomed so I took a shot immediately and posted it here.
Got another entry here!
