A Hibiscus for you Mom!

For anyone who didn't know, my mom was born and raised on the island of Maui! She is a "real" island girl! Thanks to her, I know how to hula, and was lucky enough to spend every summer of my childhood years on Maui! Today, when I went to drop off Ashlyn at her friend's house for a play date, this HUGE hibiscus was growing at the neighbor's place! It was incredible! I have NEVER seen a hibiscus this was as big as Ashlyn's head! (I also never knew that they could grow in Colorado! We're home of the aspens, not tropical flowers! Or so I thought!) :-) So, Mom, I had to post these photos as I knew you, of all people, would truly appreciate their magnificence! Ü

What a gorgeous flower and what a blessing to see it and have such lovely memories of those island days you shared in your childhood. God sends us reminders of His love and joy for us every day!
The gifts of God's creation are around us every day!
