Susan and Tom S.    bought their first Fancy Hibiscus from us about 7 years ago when they were living in Indiana.   They were on a business trip in So. Florida  when they decided to drop by.   We had a great time talking hibiscus and picking  favorites  to take to their new home in the Atlanta area.


George and Barb BS from Naples, Fl  took a relaxing drive across Alligator Alley and the Everglades on a Monday morning to see our Fancy Hibiscus.  Of course they took time to eat Cuban food on the way home.


From Hobart, In. we had Wally and Doris J. and his brother Bruce and Pat J.  They bought plants for their winter homes in New Smyrna Beach Fl and others to be shipped in the Springtime.  A very nice visit with nice people.  



Carey and Ron were in Boca Raton  from Pittsburgh and dropped by to get plants and to say hello--Thanks!!


Alix and Bob came down from West Palm Beach on a bright January Saturday...this is what south Florida is all about!
Tanya & Mike came from Russia and settled down in Ft. Lauderdale,  They are growing a tropical botanical garden on their property that consists of hundreds of tropical species, some of them are rare and exotic.  They like to brag that their place is "Home of a gazillion plants".

Of course, they were WOWED by our Fancy Hibiscus!

This is the from the 40 ft Jacaranda tree that Maria has grown from seed and is the center of our front yard landscape.


IGGY the Iguana is our resident Bug-Zapper.  He is spotted periodically chomping on red hibiscus.  I've actually seen him jumping up trying to catch Schizopetalus blooms, the ones that look like Chinese Lanterns.  We figure he's about 4 feet long.  Just one of the locals here in tropical South Florida.


VISITORS from Minnesota!! Greg and Kay D. visiting with their friend Carol (holding flower)  .....of course we had to eat CUBAN that day ...I think  Greg plans his visits more for  the Cuban food than for the plants.


Fred came to visit during the cold weather of Christmas week--notice the jacket.  Must have been at least 68 degrees that afternoon. B-r-r-rrr!


Kelly from Belle Rose, Louisiana came by to visit us and pick up plants. Here she'd holding up a coconut I'm send back to her Aunt in Labatville, La.
Here's Jarrett holding the coconut for Grand Aunt Myrtrice!
