Transplant Flowers to Cure Homesickness

Florida was discovered by an explorer named Ponce de Leon.  He named the state “Florida” which is the Spanish word for “flowers”, because, upon his arrival in this new land, he saw nothing but gorgeous flowers everywhere.  I imagine one of the flowers must have been the hibiscus, a flower that grew in the front yard of my childhood home. In fact, as a kid, it seemed like this flower was everywhere!

When I moved from Florida to Texas, shortly after my arrival, I was in a store shopping for items for my new home.  I overheard a lady talking to another lady.  She said she had just returned to her home in Texas.  She had been vacationing in Florida and she was so excited because she had found this wonderful flower!  She said she just had to bring this gorgeous flower back home to Texas and plant it her garden.

Being from Florida, my curiosity was peaked.  I wondered what Florida flower had impressed her so much.  Turns out it was the hibiscus.

I’ll never take the hibiscus flower from my childhood for granted ever again.  In fact, if you ever relocate and feel a little homesick, try transplanting a flower that reminds you of the home you left behind.
