Hibiscus denudatus - Desert Hibiscus

The Hibiscus of the Desert Late summer hillsides full of pink flowers opening with the morning sun.  Plants hidden from view at other times (to the eye of the average human) offer flowers in the heat of the desert monsoon.

This year, the summer of 2008, is a good year for Desert Hibiscus in the Tucson Mountains. These photos were taken on September 12, 2008. There were hundreds of flowers in every direction.

denutatus = naked/bare or to make naked
Following the example of the Desert Hibiscus, we should become naked and expose our inner self to the sunshine, sharing our beauty for all the world to see. On the other hand, make naked our daily world, or in other words reveal truths, step aside from our masks. See the world and our selves for what they are and not what we have been taught to see.
