Photo of the Day

Captured this Hibiscus opening at 6a.m.,  soft early light, the Hibiscus are flowering well for the first time in their lives, but everything else is dying for want of a drink.  We could really do with a spot of rain round here, -like everywhere else. 

With the water shortages is Brisbane (thanks to non action by the Government to put in enough infrastructure)  water from our Dams will be pumped to Brisbane and we are facing severe water restrictions, hence not actually watering the garden........it will have to live or die on its own and it is heartbreaking.

A closer look at the stamens before they unfold. Such beautiful flowers and they only last a day.

Absolutely stunning! And sad to think of dying from lack of water. I hope you'll get an unexpected, but welcome deluge of rain.
