Sending Flowers Your Way!


Is it ever going to quit raining?
I thought that it was spring on the coast...
I can't bring you sunshine,
but today I'd like to send all of you some flowers
wrapped with warm memories of the Hawaiian Islands.

I believe this is the famous Hawaiian Hibiscus
which blooms all year round.


This is my favorite.
I have no clue what it's called.
It's delicately placed in the green foliage and makes a beautiful backdrop.
Maybe from the African Daisy Collection?


It's a close-up of the previous.
Isn't is delicate looking?

This shot is my favorite.
It's a bare tree with very few leaves and yet
it produced this large, deep orange blossom,
magnifiying against the rich colors of the sky.

I hope the sun starts shining again.
Thank-you to all my bloggers who stop by and comment
Your comments are like flowers to me,
bringing an awareness of your special contributions to my life.

  1. What a bright spot to start off the morning, Marg! The unknown flower, the leaves look like aloe vera to me. But I don't know if it blooms in the wild, mine sure does not. Have a good day, even in the rain. Dairymary

  2. Marg, I loved all those flowers too. YOur photos are just wonderful. I was perplexed by the trees that had almost no leaves but flowers. Where they plumeria I wonder? I wondered if they always lose their leaves. Crazy, I never asked anyone.

  3. What beautiful pictures and such a perfect quote!

    I wish I could send you sun - we have beautiful sunshine here but only snowdrops and crocuses are blooming yet. Another few days like this and we will be enjoying our daffodils!

    Hoping for sun for you!

  4. I think the flower is from the succulent family, maybe an ice plant.

    Aren't the hibiscus amazing? Were there several different colors?

  5. Marg,
    I think I got Enchanted Knits at Borders. You can certainly find it online at Amazon.
    I love the house scarves and Errol the Owl and the house sweaters. The Weasley sweater is easy to knit. And it will look fabulous on ALL little boys.

  6. I had to smile at the picture of the purple ice plant flower. In my home town of San Diego the plant is everwhere holding soil in place and helping resist fire danger. We always called it pickle weed though, because the leaves broken off looked a bit like a pickle. And boy oh boy how that stuff could stain clothes...if you slipped on pickle weed and fell, you might as well throw away your outfit, those golden brown stains will NOT EVER come out. Our little white ankle socks were always in danger when we tromped through a pickle weed patch as a short cut.
