PEACH HIBISCUS, A PRETTY SHOES FLOWER

I really love this peach hibiscus.



We call it Kembang Sepatu.
Kembang means flower, and Sepatu means shoes.
Do you think the name is appropriate?




Peoples say that the flower is usually used as traditional shoe polish, to make the leather shoes look glossy.




Whatever... the flower is so pretty, and I love it so much!




And old fashion flower...




A simple flower...




Please enjoy the beauty...

  1. Love the Hibiscus and I have never seen one with this outstanding beautiful colour! When the flowers have faded you still can use them as shoe polish, haha.

    1. I'm glad that you and your family are safe. Here, we have downpour along the week. On some places, there were landslides, flood and other disasters. There are a lot of peoples on suffer and also die. We are lucky, that we are safe.
      Enjoy your great week!
