Beautiful purple Hibiscus, Shasta county, California
Hibiscus is a beautiful flower and plant.  I love the white ones, and the purple ones for that matter.  The neighbor has a bush which has been formed into a tree, and the flowers are up above.  My mother’s is more like a bush.  Not quite as old as the neighbors, his tree must be 30+ years old.
Purple hibiscus blooms two of them they are a light purple and dark reddish purple in the center with a cone in the center, that is off white color, greenery surround the flowers.

The hibiscus prefers a warmer climate.  This is the technical name for this type of hibiscus, Hibiscus syriacus.

This year, right before the purple hibiscus bloomed, I stepped out the door, and I smelled coconut.   I could not figure out where the scent was coming from.  As it turns out it was the Hibiscus!

One of my aunts has some gorgeous flowers around her yard and garden.  Lots of varieties and colors.  Here are a few of my favorites.  It’s in Trinity county and very mountainous. 
My aunt. takes very good care of all her flowers, and there seems to always be something blooming between spring, and fall.  My mother, grandmother and aunts all do a wonderful job with their gardens.

Flowers are lovely and brighten your day, and your life.  I am blessed to have aunts, and grandmothers, and my mother who all cultivate flowers, and enjoy them.

 These tiger lilies bloom every year in the back yard and they are beautiful.  I was looking on some sites, and they are an actual wildflower that grows quite easily in ditches throughout America.  They do well in moist soil, thus the natural propagation in ditches.

They also have medicinal qualities which I did not know about.  Apparently they can aid with congestion,  and the nausea and vomiting associated with pregnancy.
Beautiful and bright orange tiger lillies there are six and the sun is shining on the lillies and the greenery from the ground can be seen.
