Here is another bougainvilleas that shows the small white flowers. On most plants, that flowers are designed to attract bees or butterflies for pollenation. Why are these so small? How do they get pollenated?
There were lots of bees on the coffee tree blooms, but I was told they are pollenated by the wind.
Another red hibiscus with a watercolor filter. The state flower of Hawaii used to be the hibiscus. Now it is the yellow hibiscus.
Orchids are almost as common in Hawaii as petunias are over here. Well, not really. Hibiscus are a common as petunias are over here. Orchids are a bit harder to find, but are quite common. This one was in the planting around our condo. I like the way the flower is in focus and the background so unfocused.
We had another nice day today. Mostly cloudy but warm. I ran into a few showers on my way home. More in the forecast for the next few days. My peas are coming up in the garden, but nothing else, yet. My iris have buds, but no blooms, yet.
Not too busy today at work. I finished today's cakes, all but one of tomorrow's cakes, and started on Friday's orders. We don't like to do them more than one day in advance, but we are getting so busy that we can't do that many cakes in one day. May is our busiest month. First communion cakes this weekend. Mother's Day next weekend. And then high school graduation cakes. It would be interesting to know just how many cakes we make in the month of May, but it would take too much time to count! We are supposed to be getting another decorator this weekend that we won't have to train. That will be nice!
Bedtime already. Toodles!
