Beautiful! Many of those flowers are hibiscus, of which there are varieties that grow in temperate climates, including my state of Minnesota. I have one planted next to my pond in my backyard and every summer it produces waves of dinner plate sized white blooms with pink centers that only last a day each. Hibiscus makes great tea, too, though I’ve never made it myself.
Thank you! I love the image of these flowers (or similar ones) blooming in Minnesota.
Beautiful, I love the Traveler Palm; too bad we can’t grow it here in California
