Blushing Hibiscus

One of the strangest hotels I've ever stayed was the Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee. It was like living in a large greenhouse. The entire property was enclosed by a large glass ceiling and you rarely needed to go outside. Walkways throughout the resort wound through manicured gardens and statuary. Before my first conference session, I rose early and strolled the paths with my camera. It was my only view of the "outdoors" during my stay. During my morning walk, I came across this bright pink hibiscus at the end of its blooming cycle. I loved how its colors were still so vibrant and bold even though it had little bloom left.
