Seeing your beautiful flows this week reminded me to tell you I am TRYING to hold over the hibiscus in our living room. I had such a good time shooting it last summer. I did not know if I told you, but in Palm Beach we had a big bougainvillea hedge in our yard. It was gorgeous...and gobs of poinsettias....key line tree, orange and grapefruit trees and a mango. A great place to grow up...one block from the ocean. You see...these flowers brought back all of those memories. Genie

All gorgeous pix, but I really love that orangey/peachy one. I posted a (not-nearly-as good) picture of bouganvilla last week and didn't even know what it was. Now I do thanks to my commenters.
