Friday Flower Fiesta

It’s Friday again…. Where does the time go…. School has started…. My Texas A&M Aggies, ranked #21, destroyed #9 South Carolina 52-48 on the football field in South Carolina…. Christmas is just around the corner…. So onward to today’s Friday Flower Fiesta….

Pink hibiscus

Yellow and red hisiscus #3
Orange double hibiscus

Unknown yellow flower


The first three flowers are hibiscus, and #5 is a foxglove, but if anyone knows what #4 is, please let me know!

    Hi Russel
    I love the flowers, It is hard to tell the size of the #4 flower, or if it’s on water/near water/marsh. Possibly a wild water nymph, or wild wood buttercup…..And for a totally wild guess a wilting Cherokee rose(but yellow) Sorry I’m not very good with flowers. Let’s hope it’s a new species and you can name it. Hope you find out.
    Have a good weekend

      Unfortunately, I’m pretty sure I’m not going to get to name it. It’s just one of hundreds of blooming bushes in Balboa Park. I have written to the Balboa Park board to tell them that some identifying plates would be useful for many of the plants.

        Ah, name it anyway (they wont know) I suggest Toby or maybe -Get ready for the brownie points- Julian’s Friday Smile.
        Well, you can’t go round calling it number four of Fridays photo’s.!!! lol
        Keep snapping away Russ. I’m not a photographer, but really do appreciate your photos and found your posts on technique using Photoshop very interesting and knowledgeable.
        Take good care and give the cat a pat for me.
