Where have all the flowers gone??

Everyone knows that squirrels eat nuts and that they like to raid bird feeders, nibble fruit and gnaw through wood.  But until I saw it myself, I had no idea hibiscus flowers were also one of their preferred foods.

Ralph and I spied this gray squirrel chewing up one hibiscus flower after another at our home in New Smyrna Beach.  We had wondered why the plants didn't have many blooms. Now we know!
