Pohnpei Floral Arrangements

Pohnpei isn't called the Garden Island for nothing.  The Furstenau's and us went on a "tour" of the island yesterday to inspect apartments and vehicles.   The plants and flowers seemed to be especially vibrant and beautiful.  Some are cultivated while others seem to grow wild.  This pink orchid was just gorgeous.  My favorites are the hibiscus shown in the lower picture.  They grow in huge bushes and the willowy stems hang over the road with red, pink and orange blossoms.  House plants at home thrive outside here in the tropical climate.  And of course they bloom year round.  It's summer here every day of the year.  We feel like we live in a greenhouse.  Thank goodness for AC!
