Hibiscus

Hibiscus in the Jardin Saint Martin on le Rocher. This is one of the most peaceful gardens in Monaco and well worth a visit when you are in the vicinity of the Cathedral or the Oceanographic museum.

My preferred photo in terms of image was the smaller one on the left but I felt the two with the wrought iron railings and view down to the port of Fontvieille tell more of a story. So here are all three!

Such a frilly hibiscus. I've never seen this variety.

Beautiful hibiscus.

We've got lots of hibiscus, also, of various colors. I think they are wonderful and usually last most of the winter, but then a couple of hard freezes and kaput! But they usually come back.

What a beautiful spot that is!

Beautiful colour! Is there even a name for it?

Yoork, often in Monaco's gardens you find signs telling you the names of trees but not the smaller plants. I didn't see a name for this one unfortunately. In fact, from a distance, I thought it was a rose!
