MN Zoo trip this Sunday, August 16th at 9:00am

Just a reminder. This Sunday morning is our much anticipated trip to the MN Zoo. We will be meeting at 9:00am by the south entrance to where we pay. Just look for a bunch of people with cameras swinging from their necks.
Some of us will be joining up at the FSSP office parking lot at 8:00am and carpooling to the Zoo. Anyone is welcome to join us. If we get 4 to a car, will be saving about $5 each.

Hibiscus laevis (Halberd-leaved Rose Mallow)

These flowers are currently blooming in Lilydale Park in St. Paul at the East end of the park along Lilydale road. They are a native perennial. I have seen humming birds feeding off of these very showey flowers.
