Tropical Love

Plumerias are very similar to you and me. Their DNA can give us a record of their origin and their heritage. When it comes to these exotic tropical flowers, many associate Hawaii as their birthplace due to the abundance of plants found on the islands. They were first found in the southern forest regions of Mexico in the mid 19th century. The very first plant was brought over to the Hawaiian islands in 1860 by Wilhelm Hillebrand, a German physician.
The exotic, introduced flower thrived in Hawaii’s warm climate and volcanic soil, giving rise to the plethora of wonderful varieties born in Hawaii.

●In India, the tropical plants were known as temple trees. Buddhists said they
resembled immortality because you can snap a branch off and it will re-grow
and produce beautiful flowers from the severed branch.
● Aztec Indians used it for medical purposes.
● Caribbean’s use the leaves as a wrap to heal bruises
● Hindus offered the beautiful tropical flowers to their gods.
● In other cultures, like Bengali, the white Plumerias were associated with
funerals or death.
● In the Philippines or Indonesia, you may find these flowers in graveyards
because of the belief that the tropical plant would shelter ghosts. In Hawaii, it
is the symbol of eternal life.
● The flower is related with love in feng shui
● Polynesian women will wear the flower in their hair to represent
relationship status. Over their left ear if they are taken, over their right ear if
they are not.

Morning Dew

Reflections in the pond

From my day trip to the Balboa Park Lily Pond with my sister. Such a wonderful day just meandering around the park and shooting flowers of all kinds. But the lilies are so beautiful right now.
