Tropical blooms

I visited my parents in Corpus Christi this weekend, stayed in their newly renovated "guest cottage" (so serene), and got to see more gorgeous flowers than I could shake a camera at. These are all from their garden.

Pink turk's cap (I have one from a cutting started in my garden; hopefully it will be this healthy soon)

This creeping rangoon has climbed about twenty feet up the chinese tallow tree alongside my parents's house

A few feet away, this abandoned ficus totally outgrew its pot and is now taller than the house. Ah, the tropicals do love it in Corpus
