18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Blessing: Beautiful Tangerine Hibiscus - Methuen, MA

A Beautiful Tangerine Hibiscus, growing at my home in Methuen, MA and reminded me of a slender Flamenco Dancer flashing her flowy, crepe skirt- swirling and twirling - and stamping her feet! NOTE: I came upon my first Hibiscus flower when we were on vacation in Maui, Hawaii. I wanted to attend Mass in the beautiful Chapel on the Hilton Resort where we were staying. The Chapel garden was heavenly with gorgeous Flowers and Plants everywhere! As I walked along the pathway to the Chapel, I saw my first Hibiscus - a yellow one - and I have been hooked ever since!
