Nature rolls out her own red carpet every time JoAnn Barwick and her husband, Fred Berger, return to their vacation home in Boca Grande, Florida, on tiny Gasparilla Island. Big, showy blossoms of deep pink bougainvillea and hibiscus envelop the homeowners and cheer them along the garden path that leads to the steps of their entry, approached through an old-fashioned wraparound porch.
