Tropical floral signs

Bahamas - hibiscusHow do you know you’re in a tropical place? For some its the profusion of palm trees – but for me, I fixate on the flowers.

I do love the palms, providing shade and a different height on the landscape, but the flowers – they make me snap happy.

From the hibiscus to the bougainvillea, its the bright colours of the rainbow – yellow, orange, pink, red, purple – that  dominate my focus.

I feel so much better when I see the profusion of flowers – its a welcome that never gets old.

And its not like there aren’t flowers in Canada – in fact there will soon be a profusion of daffodils, tulips, crocuses and cherry blossoms to make everyone snap happy too.

But when you see a tropical flower – the brightness poking out from the lush landscape of sea grapes, palms, and sand – its the delicate flowers that seem to be even more interesting and pretty.
