August Break – August 5th

Blooming Hibiscus

I love hibiscus blossoms.  We have several bushes in our yard, and they are commonly used in landscaping around office buildings.  This bush is right in front of the building where I work.  There are red ones, like this one, and ruffled pink blossoms, too.  They bloom best when the weather gets warm.  I always associate them with summer. 

I am not a bumper sticker kind of girl.  I don’t like to put a label on myself or give people a reason to assume that they know something about me by what is on my car.  I do have a little hibiscus decal on the back window, though.  Something about them has always appealed to me.

I’m participating in Susannah Conway’s August Break project:

The plan is: you simply share  one photo  (or more!) per day on your blog – Monday to Friday, or every  day .Or whenever you feel moved to share. Using any camera – DSLR, compact,  Polaroid,  Holga, iPhone (my  choice), Instax, film or digital – with or  without words –  anything goes! – for the whole of August.  No pressure  – just looking at August through  your camera lens as a  way to be more  present this summer. And to have a  little break from  the pressures and  expectations of regular (wordy) blogging.

There are NO RULES, people! Just sunshine (hopefully) and a bit of fun. And lots of lovely photos to look at.
