The hibiscus plant is a favorite the world over. They remind me of the many places I have lived and indeed, they thrive in many geographical locations. Generally regarded as a tropical plant, they can grow in other more adverse conditions, but they do like an acidic soil.

This variety reminds me a bit of the mallow flower. The interior is made for attracting those insects that pollinate flowers. I took these photos during a rainstorm today, balancing the umbrella and the camera atop the tripod. It is easy to spot the rain drops. I think the rain drops add something to the photos.
