...As the apple of the eye under the shadow of thy wings...Psalms 17: 8

The hibiscus reminded me of an umbrella after I photographed it from underneath and the petals were like a canopy from that angle. Another terminology for umbrella I learned is "Bumbershoot" which I never heard of before today but never too old to learn:) We had overnight rain that continued today and more predicted tomorrow, mixed with snow.. I love to see the Hibiscus bloom in the house when it is miserable outside.

We certainly can't dispute ~
Rain on a dreary gray day....
Is a "bummer- to- shoot"
But nice to see "Bumbershoot"
Photographed a different way;
Where a flower can be an umbrella
On a rainy dreary gray day!!!

    Like the highlights from the side. Just natural lighting?

    Thanks all for the comments..Troy, the hibiscus plant is next to the south window and had natural lighting from there.
