I thought of Hollyhock when I first saw it and then recognized the Rose of Sharon. Mom has gobs of them in her yard.

Sure is Taxlady! I've decided that fresh lime margaritas are my new favorite. I do not like the mix.....blech! And fresh ones are so easy! Here is a picture if the glass with out anything in it, it has some white design etched into it ;). Cheers!

Thank you. I googled pix of both and it was hollyhocks. The other kids called them "potato flowers" I have no idea where they got that.

Ooh, pretty.

We don't use the mix either. I'm lazy, so I buy pure, organic lemon and lime juice at the health food store and use that. I like half lemon/half lime in my Margaritas.

Taxlady, I'm lazy and cheap. I will look for the juice in the health food store and I will also try you lemon/lime combo. You need a lot of limes otherwise if you squeeze them yourself :(. Ha! I'm having another one right now, I'm naughty ;)

Silly girls, I get the same effect as a margarita by doubling up my blood pressure meds...

Lol Fi! If I was on blood pressure meds I could save some money(insurance pays for meds after my deductible which is already paid for this year).
But I think I would rather not have the med issue! ;)
