This pink hibiscus flower or gumamela in Tagalog is the most common flowering plant in our place in Batangas province. Almost every garden in our neighborhood have this kind of flower. Hibiscus has many color varieties like pink, red, yellow, peach and orange.
I do not know what is the real name of these flowers. They bloom from 9:00 to 11:00 o’clock in the morning. In Filipino or Tagalog language, we called it as “alas dyes” or when translated to English literally is “ten o’clock” because the flowers are open during that time and become withered at the afternoon. It really adds beauty in our garden. I googled out and it looks similar to pink california flowers. Can anyone tell me the name of these pink flowers?
This is my favorite picture. Why? My camera Canon PowerShot S3iS was just newly bought and I still don’t know how to use it well. Perhaps, this camera is so easy to use due to the fact that it is just a standard Point n’ Shoot only. I tried to take a photo in a closer way and this is what I’ve got. Hope you like it. The reflection of dusk can be seen at the dew.
