The Pink Hibiscus

There is a special pink hibiscus that was around St.Lucie Village when I was growing up. A few of them are still left in some of the older homesteads. They're a lot hardier than the ones you buy at nurseries now. Around here, the plants have to be able to withstand the unrelenting winter winds and all the salty air that assaults them during the winter. I was able to graft one and now have one in my backyard. This painting was done from a picked flower.
