hibiscus man

My ephemeral silhouette project, which was the initial impetus behind this art out and about blog, is not something that I do so regularly now, but they do still appear now and then.  This fellow was made in Melbourne’s Domain in January.  They appear to be some kind of Hibiscus flowers, similar to the coast cottonwood.  I don’t know if the flowers usually turn dry before they fall from the tree, or if that was because it had been 43 degrees celsius and dry as a bone the day before.  While temperatures above 40 are not unheard of in Melbourne, the previous night had been the warmest minimum on record at 30.6.
