Besides our hibiscus we do have one bougainvillea that is blooming steadily. I like how the sidelight hits it in the morning and today there was the bonus of a fairly heavy dew. All comments welcome. >=))>

As I try to catch up here, I’m running out of Wows, but this definitely gets one. You found a lovely composition and the range of reds from crimson toward mauve, with the gold center, is gorgeous! The dew is perfect icing!

Gorgeous! Absolutely gorgeous, Bill. I echo what @Diane_Miller has already said. Very nicely done.

Gorgeous picture, Bill! I like the juxtaposition of triangular petals and an oval leaf. Side light emphasized the heavy dew fantastically. I wonder a variety of color temperature made this color grading of crimson toward mauve.
