Ruby Tuesday: Red Hibiscus

My neighbor grew these hibiscus flowers right next to my backyard so I could photograph them for Ruby Tuesday. Right? This is not the neighbor with the potted red plants, the one who paints the Jersey Shore. This is the neighbor who cooks with influences of North African, Persian and French cuisine. I have nice neighbors.

Love the hibiscus. It's great to have good neighbors and a plus if they are good cooks and share :0)
I love persian food...

Funny; I had hesitated between another dahlia (which I posted) and a hibiscus photographed in HK.
Beautiful sunny photos.

Michelle says

How pretty..I am working on my Ruby Tuesday post...

We grew Hibiscus in Cedarhurst. It's a beautiful flower and photo.

Ralph says

This hibiscus is stunning. I enjoy seeing the light from above in the second shot and in both, how the reddest of reds compares to the wide variety of foliage and plants in the background. Here it looks like the queen of the garden...

Yes, I wish I had such nice neighbors who plant and grow and cook! Lucky you! Happy Ruby Tuesday! :)

Great shots! I am at most times having a hard time taking pictures of red subjects, and for sure I will have a hard time shooting this one if I was at your place.

HERE is where I posted my Ruby Tuesday photo. Please hop by if you have the time. I will be very appreciated. Thanks!

Hibiscus is one of my favorite flowers. We have about 40 or so hibiscus plants in our garden (I lost count!) and among those are 28 different varieties. The red, like this one, are considered to be the "classic" hibiscus. You've done a good job of photographing them. Happy Ruby Tuesday.

In that second photo the small yellow parts and the flower look really good with all the details. Great flower photo!

Those Hibiscus plants were just wonderful.
Imagine living in a place where one can grow Hibiscus outdoors.
Great pic. Great neighbors.
