Lake Fred

Lake Fred is an actual lake located in the flat pinelands of southern New Jersey. It is also one of my knicknames acquired while I was at college. There is (or was) a Lake Fred Folk Festival in the springtime.

Gold Rain


Here's a hibiscus cultivar that can bloom as both a single and as a double. It tends to bloom as a single in the cooler months. Here is photo taken April 29, 2006 when it is still a single, but trying to be a double. The name comes from the golden yellow spots on the orange red flower petals.

Wow -- that is really amazing. I have never seen a flower doing that doubling thing before. I was also unaware of thes whole hibiscus show thing either. The timing must be excrutiating to get right.
