This week’s Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge theme is the colors of red, white, or red and white together. How about some hibiscus to illustrate this colorful theme?

Remember you can click on each image below for a larger view.  Here’s a beautiful red hibiscus flower to start with.

A white hibiscus flower is just as pretty, believe it or not. It even has a little pinkish red on it.

There’s also the beautiful ornamental pear blossoms of San Diego’s Balboa Park. They don’t smell good but they sure are pretty!

Now, if you’re looking for red and white on a single picture, take a peek at my budding strawberries. Amid the green and red leaves, you can find a few white strawberry blossoms.

Spring is almost here but Christmas wasn’t that long ago and ’tis the ultimate season for red and white!

    That second one looks like a little alien flower. 🙂

      I hear you! That’s how I recognize hibiscus: really long pistil and funny looking stamens. Horticulturists are probably hating my unflattering description, but I find hibiscus flowers very pretty.
