And All That Jazz

After a few days of dallying around with the new WordPress 2, I decided to upgrade all my blogs to the version. Of course there may be some items that just don’t work the way they used to, but I’m pretty sure most of the standard goodies do. Please let me know of any bugs you run across. Thanks.

Pink Hibiscus

(Click on image to view large size)

This is a bloom from the same bush that produced the white hibiscus earlier this year. As you can see, the blooms take on a pinkish coloration around this time. It’s as if the local flowers are having a competition of their own. A battle of the “pinks” to attract the local pollenators between cherry blossoms and other flowers.
