At one of the beach cottages at Crystal Cove State Park, there was a yellow hibiscus plant that was full of these gorgeously large blooms. How could I resist a photo or two (or maybe three).
I noticed this monarch butterfly enjoying these pretty purple booms while I was walking around Roger's Gardens.
These California White Lillies grow all around the resort property where I was staying. There were almost as many of these as there were bird of paradise blooms.
Speaking of birds of paradise, I might as well include one of the 30 or so photos I took of these blooms while I'm posting flora. One of these days I'll have to make a collage of just these blooms. I've got more than enough photos of them.
I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today. Do you like clowns?
