Q: how to delete from my favorites

A: Do you know?

I do not know what this plant is called, but it is very hardy! At one time it was not this nice looking, sort of tree like, it was just sprawling branches. I was determined to get rid of it and it always came back. I even took a chain saw to the roots and thought that I had dug them all out. Nope, it came back, but this time it is looking much prettier so I am leaving it. With that much determination to live, it is going to live and now it is rewarding me with pretty red blooms : )

    I remember how astonished you was when this tree grew back after you cut out all the roots with the chain saw. That's determination to live! I'm glad it looks much nicer than it once did. Maybe it's looking good so you won't come back with the chain saw. LOL

    It looks like a Jatropha. If it is, the sap is poisonous, and can actually burn your sking. It has beautiful flowers.
