It was nice to go from bone-chilling cold to warm and humid weather and be among a variety of very bright, colorful and beautiful tropical flowers. Now, back to the cold climate and inches of snow on the ground, the longing for the site and the scent still lingers. Working on photographs I took during the trip helps a little. Here are a few to share with you.
Sala (Couroupita guianensis) or Cannonball tree has quiet beautiful flowers that look like anemone. The flower has very sweet fragrant. I wish I could grow it here.
As much as I don’t really like Bougainvillea, I have to accept that the color combination of this plant at the place we stayed, is really something to be seen.
They look fake but they aren’t. Waterlilies comes in so many shades and colors here, some are even fragrant. Talking about fragrant tropical flowers, Plumeria is one of my favorites. It also comes in a variety of colors but I love the nuances in the white variety the most. The one below is from the rows that grow in front of the resort we stayed at, between us and the beach.
