Another flower for good vibes in the morning. This is a flower of hibiscus which we call gumamela. What so different with this flower is the size which is just 1.5 inch in wide, Had a velvet red color and many petals. Quite small compare to other flowers of this variety, but the girdle at the sides of the flower make this beautiful.

@ilocosboy that scientific name is already embedded in the gray matter of my brain, way back second year high school, year 1973.
