There are several different varieties of hibiscus in the gardens of our apartment building, but this one is my favorite. About once every two weeks, it puts out two perfect pale pink blooms, that last for a day, or maybe two.
For hibiscus enthusiasts, the BVI Hibiscus Society meets once a month to celebrate the flowers and compare particularly lovely examples. They also organize an annual show at the J.R. O'Neal Botanic Gardens in Road Town, usually in late September or early October.
