My Home: Tropical Flowers

all photos mine

 

It’s Sarah’s garden party

over at Modern Country Style!

 

Since we’re currently deep in

Midwest snow on Planet Michele

and all that’s growing inside

is cabin fever and some leggy rosemary,

today is about…

 

~TROPICAL ESCAPE~

 

featuring happy Hawaiian blooms

in my kitchen just a few seasons ago.

 

bird of paradise and i think pincushion flowers

 

Aloha!

 

 

Favorite ever? pink ginger

Favorite from my yard? hydrangea

 

Sometimes these tropical beauties

stay fresh looking for a whole month

so it’s worth the shipping cost from Hawaii.

 

(Be aware they don’t come arranged…

but you can’t go wrong – just give em a drink.)

 

Hawaii with its plumeria-scented air is breathtaking.

Wouldn’t want to live there though.
Hanging loose works for 10 days, but full-time?

I can’t take that kind of pressure.

anthuriums

 

Lush, velvety, and CHEAP! Yay!


we were tan!!! i’m on far right

Here’s to you, Sarah and friends in blogland…

May we all bloom fabulously where we’re planted!


Peace to you right where you are.

    Thank you, Michele! I needed to see some beautiful and colorful pictures today!

    I'm so tired of snow too and missing the sun. I think this is the worse winter I've experienced so far.. but your beautiful home and flowers made me smile!

    Thank you! 😉

    How cute is your kitchen, it's gorgeous! And those flowers are stunning! Those bird of paradise flowers… they're my favourite!

    Loving the sunny cheeriness of your photos… much needed to combat the grey days here too!
