Flowers of Hawai'i

In Hawai'i, so many flowers were foreign to me. And, oh, so beautiful.

I got lei'd in Hawai'i.
It isn't like in the movies. The moment you get off the plane, there is not someone there to decorate you with a lei. But we saw these at the farmer's market and Doug bought one for me. Made from Plumeria blooms, they were so fragrant. I wore it the day he bought it for me and then we left it hanging on the rear view mirror for as long as we could.

So beautiful and perfect, they look artificial. I assure you, they were not. Pots and pots of gorgeous flowers at farmer's market- I walked about in awe, smelling them, photographing them. These were bushes, near the Kona brewery. Everywhere, blooms.

Just can't imagine living where flowers/vegetation would be so full and lush year round.
Too much stimulation!!!!
Sure sounds as if you two enjoyed your days in the Aloha state! lucky dogs!

I must go to Hawaii just to see the flowers! Although I'm a little bummed to find out that they don't pass out leis right off the plane like in the movies.
