A prize hybrid hibiscus near my computer room window!! I love the multi-petaling and the deep, rose color.

NOTE: And to answer the few questions about my Bud 'n' Anni 4th of July BBQ header the last couple of days...no, I didn't draw it....I only made the header graphic with a PSP tube and Patriot font and added the red white and blue colors. Thanks for the compliments!!! I really appreciate 'em all!!!!
