Wavelength rainbow

Some plant colors and sizes are just unreal. Like yellow-orange-red-pink hibiscus flowers that are 20 cm in diameter or so (that is 8 inches for Americans). And gorgeous. This photo is from a recent trip to the university greenhouse where a lot of plants are flowering in the November grayness. It is like a little oasis in the fall somberness outside.

First real frost night with white things on grass and plants. Kids have been raking up the leaves, and I need to cover my growing spinach so it survives the winter better.
