Plumeria and Hibiscus

This morning as I sat on my porch waiting for the rain to life, I admired my plumeria and hibiscus plants. I bought the plumeria many years ago on a trip to the Canadian National Exhibition. Then it was only a stick a foot long. It rooted in water and and come to thrive. My hibiscus plant was a gift from a friend as he was moving to Florida. Plumeria flowers remind me of kayaking in Hawaii where I happened across an aromatic flower floating down toward me. My brother has a hedge of hibiscus which blooms much longer than the one day life of my blooms. Both flowers always bring back the delights of my trips to Hawaii and times with my brother. I'm glad life has its little reminders.
