Island Blooms

During our visit to "The Big Island" of Hawaii, the lobby of the Prince Resort had several beautiful floral arrangements for me to study.



They were created by "The Flower Shop of Hapuna".





I thought I would also share this poem written by John Alexander Joyce in 1885.


" Yon island blooms within a vale




Where crystal waters kiss the flowers,




Round, rolling ridges bold and high,





And every sound that fills the gale




Responds unto the golden hours.





The fragrant flowers of blooming may





Exhale their perfume to the sky



And give to all a perfect day. "

Thank you for sharing some of the beauty of the islands. I haven't been there in 25 years, but I still remember the beauty.

We went to Hawaii for our honeymoon back in 1977 and the flowers were beautiful and so exotic for a Colorado couple. Thanks for sharing the arrangements with us. ♥♫
