"yellow"~ PhotoHunt

PhotoHunters

I was amazed at how many yellow photos I have. Yellow buildings, yellow Smart Cars, yellow foods, yellow vehicles, yellow hats, yellow chairs, yellow trees, etc. etc.

I decided to share something from Hawaii. I have been walking by this gorgeous yellow hibiscus flower all week at school. The bush is located between my class and the Kindergarten class. I grabbed the camera in my classroom one day and took a few photos as our class headed to the bathroom, a place we visit frequently. I often joke that my desk should be located in that bathroom.

Most of the hibiscus bushes at our school produce red hibiscus flowers. We also have a few bushes with orange and white or light pink flowers. The bush with the yellow hibiscus flowers at our school is my favorite.

This yellow hibiscus flower is not the native yellow hibiscus (Hibiscus brackenridgei A. Gray) which is the Hawaii State Flower. If you scroll down to the bottom of the page of this link, you will see a close up of the native yellow hibiscus.

How gorgeous! Wow!

Lovely...I don't think I've ever seen a yellow one! I'd love to visit Hawaii one day.
I'm a retired elementary teacher...so I know you are having fun with the little ones!

What a perfectly beautiful flower and so well photographed. Happy Saturday.

Eden:

I have a yellow hibiscus bush in front of my house. Unfortunately, the gardener thought it needed a trim so he chopped it down to sticks. I am not happy. Your hibiscus photos are beautiful!

i seldom see yellow hibiscus too

It's funny because I didn't have many yellow photos at all! I went out and took mine this week. Love your hibiscus! They grow in NC but aren't quite that impressive. How nice that you have them at your school! Have a great weekend!

we get a lot of hibiscus in Asia too!

june:

Yellow hibiscus are my favorite of all hibiscus! Sooooo pretty!

Nice yellow hibiscus :)

girasoli,
I almost went with a yellow hibiscus too. I do like these flowers/Beautiful shots.
I did not know that this was not the native flower.

kaye:

exotic--I love the daintiness of the hibiscus.

Wow what a beautiful yellow hibiscus!

Mar:

What a beautiful choice for the theme!! I have three hibiscus in my garden but none of them is yellow. Happy weekend :)

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Girasoli, beautiful close-up photo and excellent choice for this week's theme! I like the little red in the middle with the little flower coming out.

Great choice! Have a great Sunday!

Palma:

Oh, I love yellow flowers. That one is a real beauty!

I love hibiscuses! We have yellow ones here but they don’t do very well in the desert. The native Hawaiian hibiscus is gorgeous and looks very delicate.

Perfecto! That's one great looking hibiscus. I only wish we could grow these on the East Coast. Gaud knows I've tried in containers over the summer. Thanks for the photo. Menehune

I love seeing all of the hibiscus when in Hawaii. Thanks for sharing the beautiful yellow one. I can't wait for our visit there next month.

A belated thank you everyone!!

Eden, I would not be happy either.

candi, I always thought it was until I googled the State Flower and saw that the middle is not red.
