The Hot, the Loud and the Proud; Hibiscus;

This is my favourite red Hibiscus, its flowers are double and as big as a dessert plate. It is very hardy too.

I always liked this Cuban variety; its striking colours of yellow and red; easily propagated from cuttings.

Isobel Beard is a little diva, only shows off her gorgeous flowers when she wants to.

Hawaiian elephant ear grows to a tall bush; wonderful, big double flowers kissed with pink.

As it is the height of summer I thought I let some of my Hibiscus show of their hot, loud and proud flowers.

A search for a Virgin continues.

There was no problem, however, finding enough asses
to fill the stable.

We all know politics is a dirty, hidden game. A big, bad bruise.

Politics has always been the rotten part in people’s history. Its war cry has not changed, deceive, rob, lie and terrify.

Luckily we have today the Internet and Wikileak which the rotten bunch in high offices do not like because their evil doings are exposed.

There are a few, perhaps a handful of gracious, honest and candid Politicians in the world. The majority are a despicable bunch of …..
