Yeah, yeah. Flowers. I didn't see much else this morning. This is one of the native white hibiscus that was uprooted in the storm. As you can see, it doesn't much care that it spent a day with its roots exposed. What most people think about when they think about "hibiscus" are the Chinese ones, which are beautiful but are not native Hawaiian species. Given any choice, we try to plant native species.


I liked the yellow, but the dew made the image for me.
