They're Back! Treasure Island is in Bloom

The hibiscus always put in a thoughtful appearance at the time of my birthday (70 years--ouch!).  So far it's not the carpet of blooms seen in prior years--perhaps the wonderfully mild summer has taken some of the zing out--or perhaps it has just delayed things a bit.  Still--they are quite a sight.  I suppose someone must have planted them at one time, but we have been here for eighteen years now, and they were here long before us.  They have done some traveling around the lake and we now have a nice colony at the shore side pier as well.  Enjoy!
