Red Hibiscus & White Periwinkle

Today I’m sharing a few flowers from my yard I put in my crystal bowl.  It had been a beautiful day with a low of 62 F and a high of 82 F. We had several weeks with higher than normal temperatures. I love the blue skies and low humidity in the winter here in central Florida. Our weather is semi-tropical. We usually have mild winter weather with fronts from the north periodically in December and January.  My two single red hibiscus were blooming big, beautiful flowers.  I picked 2 for a bowl with several little white periwinkle flowers.  I placed the red hibiscus and dropped periwinkle around the red flowers.







The crystal bowl is on a turquoise plate on the dining table.  The flowers will only last one day, but they brighten my home.
