Open thou my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things ..Psalm 119: 18

Not yet a full flower...
The bud of the Hibiscus
Often sets its own hour,
When to open for us

Let it ring in New Year
In the morning to rise
Its blossoms of cheer
To behold with our eyes.
Poetry by me AJP

My Hibiscus plant is as tall as I am and the bud is located at the very top ...I had to raise my tripod higher to shoot a picture..hopefully it will produce a flower tomorrow on New Years Day..

Update: January 1, 2015...Yes, the flower opened today but decided to enter a picture of a Badger Fan who was wearing red and white striped bib overalls in support of his team...I never saw an outfit quite like his before in a grocery store and it was a first for me to photograph:) His stripes however did match the hibiscus flower that is also red and white when shot from beneath.
