Travel Photo of the Day (June 13)

Today was a difficult day so I have chosen a travel photo to cheer me up.  I took this photo in Honduras.  Not only is this flower beautiful, but it reminds me of home.  During my childhood, I had a hibiscus tree outside my bedroom window and whenever I see one I always smile.  Now I think I’ll take a hot bath and read a book.

    I have always loved hibiscus and birds of paradise flowers. Hope you’re out of your funk soon.

      We had a birds of paradise in the backyard. That one caused me more issues since I usually kicked the soccer ball into it at least a couple times a month. Some in the family didn’t appreciate it even though I would explain that it wasn’t intentional. Still, they are lovely.

  2. That is a cheerful flower, indeed!

  3. Love shots of hibiscus. I have a few in different colors. They are so abundant here. I’m seriously thinking I want some in my front yard!

    Great photo, there is something about Hibiscus flowers which make me think of tropical island beaches and it makes me smile too.
    Hope you are feeling better.

    How beautiful! And such a nice memory to have. 🙂 It sounds like the perfect evening – have a hot bath, settle down with a book, maybe some soft music in the background, a glass of wine within reach…

  13. Novroz says:

    A very common flower in my country too.
    we call it ‘bunga sepatu’ here, meaning shoe flower.
