Another week of transition as I flew to Chicago on Friday, but this is only for a short trip to see my college-age kids. I continue to thoroughly enjoy Arizona. It is so amazing in its beauty. I’ve said this before, but America is so beautiful.
I have loved Hibiscus flowers ever since I worked in a greenhouse in Minnesota in the 90s. I finally saw them “in the wild” in Florida when I went to my future in-laws the first time. This beautiful Hibiscus in Arizona was
