hawaii sights

DSC01647 Taken on Saturday...

This varigated hibiscus plant in our garden collection blooms every year.

The leaves are green and white and the flower is kinda droopy.

I took this from a low angle looking up.

A beautiful example of flowers in Hawaii, but now I'm having a bit of hibiscus deja vu. As kids we used to pull out the stem and suck on the nectar at the broken end (or did I remember that all wrong?). The nuns would always scold us for wrecking the flowers.

I remember as kids, Rowena, other kids used to pull the ixoria (sp?) stem and suck on the nectar, along with the honeysuckle's stem too, I could be wrong though.

Take care.

Yep, we sucked the honeysuckles too.

I never tried them Sheri, but it sounds like it was the thing to do back then :)

Take care.
