  1. Hibiscus ……… ; πŸ™‚ a typical garden variety here in Florida too! As far back as my childhood I remember them growing everywhere. The one thing I didn’t know about Hibiscus until recently , is that squirrels LOVE them . I guess it takes care of their sweet tooth. πŸ™‚ Or maybe they bring them to their latest lovey! Anyway, They are so cute running away from the plant with a pretty flower in their mouth.
