Hibiscus in bloom

Retired chiropractor and former V.I. Olympian Dr. Marlon Williams stopped to “enjoy his flowers” during a recent run on St. Croix. The yellow hibiscus, which symbolizes happiness, luck and positivity, is one of several species growing around the island. They can be found in other colors, including pink, representing deep friendship and love; purple, representing intelligence, and the ever-popular red that symbolizes passion and love.
