Against all odds

When I made it home yesterday evening, I noticed this bloom. My nephew, who is now a teenager and doesn't really appreciate those "you were so cute when you used to do this" stories, used to call these "hi-biscuits" when he planted them with my mother. She had lots of flowers but I think I inherited my non-green thumb from her. This hibiscus was hers and against all odds and serious neglect, it's still blooming. Some of the leaves are crispy but it's blooming.
