Catching the fleeting scenes of many splendored life with a camera.

Summer Colours, Pink.
Flowering Trees. Rose Of Sharon.

Looks like I'm bent on creating/compiling my own personal gallery of all plants and flowers I can get my hands on. This way I'm kind of rendering my modest homage to the beauty of Nature.
Rose of Sharon flowers set against the blue sky and green leaves on a sunny day creates one of my favourite colour combinations — pink, cerulean blue and green.

Hibiscus Syriacus (Malvaceae - Mallow Family), aka Rose-of-Sharon or Shrub Althea is a flowering shrub in the plant family Malvaceae native to much of Asia. It is upright and vase-shaped, reaching 2-4 m in height. It is widely planted in areas with hot summers for its very attractive white, pink, red, lavender, or purple large and edible flowers. Individual flowers last only a day, however it flowers over a long summer blooming period (July-September).

These gorgeous trees grow along the nearby streets.
