I don't have names for the rest of these flowers. Please jump right in if you do! I'm not all that knowledgeable about plant names, but this reminded me of a morning glory. This was a delicate little purple flower. I much prefer large, fat flowers to tiny.
This red flower looked like it was growing horns!
My guess for this one would be burning or flaming something or other.These cut flowers we found at the market. They grow in the wild in Hawaii. Still hard to believe I was in such an exotic place that grew these flowers and I didn't have to visit a florist to see them. There's a Chinese couple who have a flower shop 2 blocks from where we live in Victoria. I often stop by to pick up a little boquet of flowers for Beth to look at during the day while I'm at work. They have the best selection. When I was in the shop last week I saw they had grown a number of orchids like these purple and white ones. Each plant had one orchid stem with a handful of flowers. And each plant was about $35. I never asked how much they were at the market in Hawaii. Probably a couple of bucks as there was a great supply of them.One of my regrets is not getting to the market earlier in the trip to buy lots of exotic fruit. I'm not very adventurous when it comes to eating, but did try a fresh pineapple (I could smell them from about 20 feet away), star fruit (the sour variety our driver in the Waipio Valley picked for us) and papaya. The market had huge papaya's 4/$1. I found some in our local grocery store the other week and they were about $4 for 1. The papaya tasted okay, but I think I'd stick with the pineapple. They will never taste or smell as good as the one we had in Hawaii.
