무궁화꽃 만발해 !

무궁화 {R:} Moo gung hwa {E:} The rose of Sharon is korea’s national flower. When I knew that I was going to be the father of a child born in South Korea, I tracked down and planted one of these plants in my yard. It is now about 4m tall. Today is the first day it started to bloom this season. It has an amazing flower that starts out pure white but by the end of the day ( 6 hours or so ) turn a bright pink. This photo I took this morning shows a newly bloomed flower next to one that bloomed a couple of hours earlier. (click on the picture to zoom-warning large pic).
