Tulips and other plants – Florida version

I am not sure what my garden is doing at the moment because I am lucky to be away visiting in Florida.   Friends report that there has been ice, snow, rain, melt, freeze, more ice, so I hope my plants are safely snoozing.  Here are some lovely local plants I saw on a walk yesterday.

The bougainvillea are stunning.



Red Hibiscus


Orange Hibiscus


Bird of Paradise




I don’t know the name of this but I like the two different colored blossoms


And those tulips I mentioned?  There are lots of pretty shells here. The smaller ones are called banded tulips and the larger are the true tulips – one with a tillandsia tucked inside.
