I was so thrilled when Naomi pointed my attention to the healthy hibiscus bushes thriving in the corner near the entrance to our new neighborhood. The flowers are so big and with vibrant colors.
I love hibiscus! It is the simplest flower for me.
In Malaysia, being it's national flower, it is called Bunga Raya (Bunga = flower, Raya = great).
I grew up calling it gumamela.
