Good to be home...

After 2 long days on the road... I'm back.  The flowers (from my last post) are called Coral Vine. They bloom during the summer and have pretty heart shaped leaves and tender, curly tendrils.  I don't think they are native to Florida, but I've seen them all my life, and they don't seem to be invasive...just pretty...  Glad you all liked them.

I took these with my phone today at our Sarasota office after a rain...

It's a very a popular and low maintenance "Florida Friendly" landscape plant, called Jatropha (sp?).


  1. Glad you had a safe trip and that you are home. We are heading out for a few days of rest and relaxation. Hope you have a good week-end.

  2. We were in the States for 6 weeks and constantly on the road. I racked up quite a few miles (like thousands) in my rental car!

    What a lovely little bloom. Best wishes for a beautiful day! :) Tammy

  3. There really is no place like home! I absolutely love the cat picture on the top. Sooo cute! What a great phone picture. It's pretty amazing what those little cameras can do. The flower is really gorgeous. Hugs, Diane
