I really love hibiscus flowers.  You might know that from my avatar. 😉  They grow like weeds in Florida and this makes me smile.  We have a huge bush of them blooming just outside my studio right now.  The bright orange bud you see in my mouth is courtesy of this 10 year old plant.  Recently while walking the back streets of downtown St. Augustine, I came upon this long tall shoot with one red flower at the top.  The tree was barren otherwise and it’s surrounds were dead and brown…it was a beacon.  A reminder to me to stand tall and keep reaching for the sky no matter what garbage is all around me.  Enjoy!
