    Here's one for you guys. Thought it was pretty and wanted to see how many would guess what it is... I know, I'm new at this and most of you are not, so you'll probably guess it right within minutes, but that's okay... thought I'd share the pic. (excuse the blurrrrr)

    It is Hibiscus, but since I'm new at this, I don't know the name or type. Hibiscus is the right answer to me... here's a photo of the flower:
