Outdoor Wednesday

 On the way to our youngest daughters home, we pass a home that has this incredible flower. I think it may be in the Hibiscus family but I'm not sure.  All I can say is that the blossoms are the size of a large dinner plate.  I am always blown away by the beauty of them and this year is no different. 
I decided that I had to show something to compare the size of the flower; just look at that baby. 
I also love the variegated colors; I realize that we won't have the flowers much longer-once the frost arrives,they will be gone.
Have a wonderful day dear friends.


  1. How GORGEOUS!! It sure looks like a hibiscus to me. We have one out on the deck, but its blooms don't get anywhere near that big.

  2. Beautiful Noreen, love the colors. and such a large blossom.

  3. That is a gorgeous color. I've only grown them a few years and I'm still stunned at their size every year. So very fun!

  4. Hi there! I am a new follower - love your blog and your love for Jesus! I saw another blog where they had discovered the same type of flower. Amazing! How can people not believe their is a Creator - an intelligent designer - when you see something like that!! Many Blessings ~ Alice

  5. Hi! Noreen, wow! that is a beauty! Definately looks like a hibiscus., never seen one that big! but they are a beautiful flower. Have a great evening:)

  6. That hibiscus is fantastic. Ours just bloomed this week for the first time - big, but not enormous like that.

    I noted today that you just joined as a follower - I will enjoy having you visit and comment, if you wish. I always am curious as to how I get new blog followers. I'm thinking I need to get some more new friends, since so many have opted out of blogging - many are doing Facebook only. Fun, but not as good as blogging!

    Where in Colorado are you? I'm in Loveland.

  7. how very pretty! Thanks for sharing! Enjoyed visiting your blog.
