Hibiscus

Delightful Inspiration has a beautiful set of images this week, called
Tropical Summer...I just love the hibiscus flowers. We have a fabulous one at the bottom of the stairs
at the entry way. I went out in the rain to see if I could get a good shot. It  rained here all
night and the blossoms are heavy with water. I had to picked them and set them on top of the
leaves to get a decent shot. I was not going to lie in the water to photo these babies while they
were still attached. Brought them inside to see if i could get a better shot and.....
you be the judge.
The color vs the rain drops.
Aren't they just beautiful?
 IRL they are more orange than pink!
Here's the card.....
The set comes with two images one with the frame and the other with out it.
I used both...can you tell? 
Thanks for coming by!
