Hibiscus Moon



I haven't posted much lately so I thought that I would add one last Moon Plant update (I promise!). The moon plants continue to thrive and produce blossoms in abundance. The blossoms also seem to defy what I said about Moon Plants only blooming at night with blossoms on my plant starting around 7:00pm and lasting well up until 8:00am.

In defense of the post title I just wanted to use something a little different so I made up a title that reflected the photo subject and background. The Hibiscus in the background is also in my flower bed with the Moon Plants but it seems to be finished for the season. It never produced more than two blossoms at a time but they were magnificent when they were fully open. I took some broad liberties by layering two images and then duplicating them to create my backgound.

I hope to actually find the time to be a little bit creative in the very near future. I hope to do a bit more sketching for Illustration Friday and photography for Photo Friday soon.

Well, it's about time you updated us on something! The plants look good! But, how are you guys doing? Are you thriving as well as the Hibiscus Moon?
Love you!
