I offer this picture as a humble Easter gift. This is a hibiscus that Judi has growing in a big pot on her deck. The flower is enormous -- six inches or more across. The colors are so over-the-top that they're almost obscene... but only almost. The stigmata are so intensely red I think they might be radioactive (anybody have a geiger counter?). You cannot walk across the deck and notice this flower without stopping in your tracks. Isn't that appropriate for Easter?

I took all these pictures on Friday. Below are some close-ups and different views. You can click on any picture for a larger view. I hope you have a sublime Easter:

What a beautiful flower! Why isn't there any snow in the background?
