Holualoa Hydrangea

Hydrangeas abound on the Big Island. Gorgeous bushes line the driveway of the place I'm staying. The assortment of blossoms you're looking at is at the beginning stages of what will soon be a robust blue color. The inner ivory color is extremely beautiful as well.

When I was growing up in Washington State, our home had two hydrangea bushes: one with blue blossoms, and the other with pink.

Holualoa Torch Ginger

Today we went on the Holualoa Coffee and Art Stroll, an annual event that showcases many brands of local coffee, plus arts and crafts. While strolling on the grounds of the Holualoa Inn, I spotted this red torch ginger. Enjoy my rendition of this incredible flower!

Holualoa Hibiscus

I'm visiting relatives in Hawaii, and wanted to share a lovely apricot-colored hibiscus with you. There is a huge hibiscus plant behind the house, and I'm enjoying the blossoms tremendously.
