SOOC Saturday - beautiful Hibiscus



This was floating by our Kayak on the Hanalei River. These flowers were dropping off the bushes onto the water. All I could think of was "beauty". Oh... to live with beautiful flowers around you all year long...Brian wanted to grab it and put it in my hair and I said "no just let it float by...it is there for us to enjoy its beauty".

Hibiscuses are my absolute favorite! I can't wait for my little tree to start blooming *sigh* it's a very late bloomer around here, so I won't see anything till the end of summer so thank you for giving me a little fix! BEAUTIFUL!!

Sigh!
Gorgeous image, but what I loved most was when you told us how your husband wanted to put in your hair. Romantic, loving. LOVE!

So beautiful! Makes me miss Kona - we've tried in vain to grow them in the Pacific Northwest, but alas - they prefer vacation soil! :)

Thanks for the smile!

videos on horse

I always like to get a shot or two when horses are around. I thought the trees turning colour would turn out on this video Nada. ...
