White hot flower lovin'

The ginormous hibiscus in my white flower garden finally bloomed. I saw the other white flowers taking bets as to whether it was going to bloom before it was being devoured by Japanese beetles. Fuckers. (The beetles, I mean, not the other white flowers.)

This photo and some others have been added to my flick'r album. I especially like this little guy:

Reminds me of fireworks :) Pretty, pretty, pretty!

You can always tell if a flower is from the hibiscus family (Malvaceae) because the stamens are fused to the length of the pistil tube. In most other flowers they are completely separate parts. Cool huh?
