Snap!

They were in Palolo walking down a crowded sidewalk hand-in-hand. She spotted a gorgeous Hibiscus blossom outside the bank. “Ohhhh!” She sighed, stopping dead. She let go of his hand and began rummaging through her bag.

He took a few steps away and diligently studied a light pole. As She pulled the camera from her bag He muttered under his breath (just loudly enough for her to hear), “Turista! Turista!”

Snap!

Que sera, sera.

  2. Polona — there are flowers everywhere! Bright, beautiful and exotic. I never tire of snapping their pictures. Maybe someday I’ll even get good at it! The ocean shots on my other blog were made possible by my tripod — a Christmas gift from O’Ceallaigh.

  4. Yea… don’t EVER get over being a “turista”! God gave you that beauty for a reason! He LOVES that you LOVE it!!! And so do I!

  5. By the way… how to you PRONOUNCE O’Ceallaigh? And please don’t say O.C.! Thank you!

  6. Melli — don’t worry. I carry my camera everywhere!

    And O’Ceallaigh said to tell you his name is pronounced amoeba.

  7. OH! Did I hear you say we should have a CONTEST to see who knows how to pronounce O’Ceallaigh?

  8. Amoeba says Oh. Hard C like in Celtic. E, silent a; two L’s, “aigh” was in “weigh”. Got it?

  9. I think I have been pronouncing it in my head

    O KALA both long A’s

    Well,,I will never remember the right way, once I prounouce them wrong, there is no hope for me.

    that is a lovely flower. It brings my grandmother to mind. I can’t see a Hibiscus without thinking of her. She tried to raise them in the snow country, babied them indoors, and if they would produce one tiny little flowers she was ecstatic. I moved to garden grove and they had them 8 feet tall as hedges. With flowers six inches and more across………I had to shake my head, If my grandmother could have only seen them in their glory.

    This is a very vibrant color..the ones she had were a muted soft apricot. But they come in many colors, as do their relatives the mallows and the hollyhocks.

  10. Nea, this flower was easily a 6 incher — and you can see the thickness of the bush branches. They also grow quite tall here.

    Hibiscus does come in a good variety of colors, from deep red to palest yellow. These were the first flowers I had seen with the vibrant yellow petals and the deep crimson throat. They are truly magnificent.

  11. Beautiful picture! I hope you never stop noticing how beautiful that place is.

  12. TLP — so do I!

  13. A flower worth stopping for! I could never have resisted it.

  14. Kat — yep. I didn’t even try.
