Hawaiian Sunset


Stictocardia Beraviensis

A flowering vine has to be a knockout if it is growing by the ponds containing water lilies at a botanical garden. When I walked up the small hill to the upper ponds I didn’t even notice these flowers. It was only after I sat for a while on the cement ledge containing the soil from which it grew, oblivious to what hung above me while that I took photographs of water lilies and the glass sculptures rising out of the center of the pond, did I turn around and see this beautiful Hawaiian sunset in a flower. What a perfect name!

After the buds fall off, they add color to the lily pond. Although it appears to me that the lotus blossom isn’t going to be upstaged.



I'd love to hear your thoughts.
