I've got green fingers after all!

My hybrid hibiscus has bloomed again! Not the easiest of hybrids to grow, I have seen these bloom to a size bigger than an outstretched palm. Mine is only a modest 12cm across. Not bad, I guess, considering it's in a pot :-)

This beauty in my neighbour's garden is the common garden hibiscus. This variety is a native of Malaysia and is our national flower. Not as huge as some others, but still a pretty sight to behold, especially when gathered into a bouquet and displayed in a goldfish bowl.

Found two more varieties down the road where I live. These are multi-layered ones.
