They say ‘April showers bring May flowers,’ but on Sunday, the Mike Bernard Acadiana Chapter American Hibiscus Society is responsible for bringing the flowers to Lafayette.

The chapter hosted it’s annual flower show and sale in Cathedral-Carmel’s gym.

"Some are looking for a particular variety. Others are just looking for a color, and it is so nice for us to be here and be able to offer advice, which we have learned simply by trial and error," said the chapter’s treasurer, Buddy Short.
