Gorgeous Flowers

Right now the island is blooming with tropical flowers in all sorts of vibrant colors.  My yard doesn't have many, but we do have a few.  I'm not even sure of the names of the various trees and flowers, but it doesn't diminish the fact that I thoroughly enjoy them!  Especially delightful is the fact that hummingbirds love these flowers and congregate regularly to drink the nectar.  I wish I had a picture of the hummingbirds, but they are too quick for me!

The flowers are beautiful, but Vincent's favorite part of this tree are these huge seed pods.  I'm pretty sure I've opened no less than 50 of these for him!

These grow right outside my front door.  The tree is very spindly though and there are only a few branches with sparse blooms.  Vincent loves to pick these and bring them to me by the handfuls.  I try and encourage him to leave them on the tree to enjoy, but he doesn't quite understand that just yet.  How can a mother say "no" to her son picking her flowers?

This one grows in our neighbor's yard.  Again, not sure of the name, but it looks and smells wonderful!

I do actually know the name for this one.  It is the pink plumeria and it smells even better than it looks!
