Today I stopped at the garden shop on the way back from town, as I needed to get some soil for transplanting my new and still-tiny tomato plants. (I’m trying for the third time to grow tomatoes!) While I was there I saw this beautiful two-coloured tropical hibiscus plant – gorgeous! I just happened to have my camera with me, so I managed to get a couple of shots while I was waiting for the gentleman to help me with the soil.
There were also these gorgeous red flowers that I took a photo of as well. I should know the name of these but I don’t. I’m sure it is even a relatively common flower, but still don’t know the name of it. That reminds me of the joke about women calling cars by their colour, not their name. For example, that lovely ‘blue car’, rather than that gorgeous ‘blue Mercedes Benz’. I actually know the names of the cars – just not the flowers!
