Pretty in pink, this hibiscus is marred by a damaged petal...but that doesn't seem to take away its beauty. It was a welcome sight, as the sun warmed us to our normal temperatures for this time of year.

Similar to previous thoughts about 'interesting', the blemish here adds character and invites additional thought compared to a photo of a 'perfect' flower. For me, it is due to the transparent bruise (and that triangle of sunlight) that continues to draw me back wonder about its feel its symbolism....and to investigate its depth. If only we could appreciate human nature in the same manner. Naples, FL

  1. Beautiful analogy. I am reminded of the movie Pretty in Pink with Molly Ringwald. Similarly her beauty is cast among the challenges around her.
