Friday Flower Fiesta (3-13-15)—Happy Friday the Thirteenth!

Friday Flower Fiesta

San Diego has had a very long rainy season this year, possibly the longest I’ve experienced since 1993 when I moved here. It started early this winter, with .37 inch in November 2014, 3.95 inches in December, .42 inch in January 2015, .04 inch in February, and .89 inch so far in March. We even had hail earlier this month!

The rain, spread out over several months, means that plants have a better opportunity to drink up some of that water. When that happens, every plant seems to bloom whether or not it’s that plant’s blooming season.

Here is a representative collection of Photographic Art stamps made from pictures taken this past week.

Hibiscus

Friday Flower Fiesta from the San Diego Zoo

Friday Flower Fiesta

How did we go a whole month without a Friday Flower Fiesta? I must be losing it since FFF is one of my favorite posts. Here ya go!

All pictures are from the San Diego Zoo during the past month. The first three pictures are of giant hibiscus, located around Flamingo Lagoon just across from the entrance to the Zoo. Giant hibiscus flowers can get up to eighteen inches in diameter and are quite stunning.

Some flowers, like the hydrangea, aren’t supposed to be blooming at this time of year. I have found, though, that flowers often get confused here in San Diego about when they are supposed to bloom. I think it has something to do with the weather.
