... is Philippines local name for this beauty. This is internationally known as Hibiscus. They're flowers of the tropics, also the best ear accent. The native ones can grow like trees, but the hybrid ones, which I love their varied bloom much, is shorter, this one in particular is a native breed and was shot at my son's school yard.

Thanks for dropping by and MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone.
