Happy March



These brilliant red hibiscus flowers were blooming in front of the hotel we stayed at in Fort Lauderdale. We had left Calgary early in the morning and it was -16C. In Fort Lauderdale, it was warm and humid and rainy. And there was green grass and blooming things. It was such a treat for our winter-weary souls. When we returned home, it was again very cold and very foggy. Good riddance to February, I say, time to turn our thoughts to spring and sunshine.

The colors are glorious! I am so happy you drew hibiscus because it's the national flower of Malaysia too :)

Lynn, your hibiscus are beautiful. Spring can't be far away -- I found the first crocus of the year poking up out of the leaves right next to our house where the snow has melted. Yeah!

It's lovely! I usually have a pot or two of them growing on my porch during the summer. It's nice to see them in March! nancy

These are beautiful. They remind me of my Morning Glorys I have planted next to the deck. Lots of people consider them a weed, because they spread so prolifically, but I love seeing their big color blooms. Glad you got to enjoy some sunshine and warm breezes and get a break from the cold northern winter. Looks like March is coming in like a lion this year.

Great choices on the colors--the background really sets off the flowers.

Great job, Lynn! The colors are fabulous! I am hoping my hibiscus come back this year and weren't killed by the freezes!
