Welcome Home



Our vacation to Hawaii was so wonderful, I wanted it to last forever. But how can I complain when I come home to a garden full of show-offs? As soon as the suitcases hit the family room floor (I’m one of those who puts off unpacking because it means that the vacation is officially over), my camera and flip flops found their way out to the garden, trying to capture the outrageous beauty on display. Thanks for the happy homecoming.
