Blooming in Florida

Yesterday evening we went out for a burger. When we returned there was a squirrel running across the yard with something bright orange in his mouth. I jumped out the car to see what it was. There was the little varmint, halfway up an oak tree, calmly eating a bloom from our hibiscus bush. Bill is already extremely upset with our squirrel population. They dug up and destroyed his amaryllis bulbs, took the blossoms off the gardenias, and tasted everyone of his peppers(then decided they didn't like them). The live oaks on either side of our property attract the squirrels. It is not unusual to look out the front window and see 8-10 of them playing in the yard. They better watch out. Bill couldn't hurt a fly but they are getting on his last nerve.
I took some photos of the hibiscus and one rose before the squirrels get to them.

Your flowers are beautiful!
I love the hibiscus. It is such a beautiful color.

We have tons of squirles here too.
They were sitting on the trash can eating slices of left over pizza that had been thrown away! Pesky little things - but so cute LOL

Teekee is adorable! What a darling use of those unbrellas!
