That's a lush Beauty!
Wonderful photo!
Can't wait when the blistering heat here is over and some few flowers start to blossom again :)

That's absolutely beautiful!! I love the way you took this photo. We're considering planting a couple of these on the sides of our front porch for some beautiful privacy.

Gorgeous flower. I just planted a Crepe Myrtle in my yard, they give such long lasting blooms during the summer months. Great shot.

My immediate reaction was you'd been taking close-ups at the Follies Bergere!!!!!

What a stunning red.

Excellent shot. This used to be one of my mothers favorite flowers, and I had almost completely forgotten. Thanks for the memory!

Boy, that one works for a Ruby Tuesday, too! Spectacular color, and wonderful, captivating composition! Makes me want to reach right out and touch it!
