Bubble Gum Pie
When that pink hits your eye
Like a bubble gum pie -
When the blooms seems to shine
'cause the weather is fine -

I lost internet service during a period of severe thunderstorms yesterday afternoon, before I had left any comments for the day, and only got it back this morning. So apologies for not responding to all the lovely comments left yesterday for my own shot.
You have to be pretty old to recognize my lame parody of the tune from the 1950's, 'That's Amore', made popular by Dean Martin (originial lyrics here, for example: http://www.metrolyrics.com/thats-amore-lyrics-dean-martin.html)
Lots of hibiscus are in bloom around town - almost like a second season of blooms, but none were any larger than these, which were the size of salad plates, fully 8-9 inches across.
