Today's Flowers...new addition

Please enlarge to get a better picture.....
New to my garden this year are SW Florida native plants that don't mind the heat, and can take the wet or dry weather.  One requirement was that I wanted them to attract birds and butterflies and so far it's working.  Best thing of all is I didn't even have to buy these!  A Master Gardner friend gave them to me which I am grateful for.

Goodness! Someone in Key West told me that was banyan. It was all over our B&B too.

Somehow St. Paul and the Royal Poincianna just doesn't sound as good. :) But thank you for the correction.

Its a real beauty, Vickie.
I love your header!
We have a lot of sea turtles coming ashore every night now. Their nest are all over the beach. Can't wait until they hatch and race to the sea.

Very beautiful shot, Vicki! That bush looks like an oleander with lantana blossoms - stunning without that little looker of a butterfly hanging from it! Very nice.
