Luau Anyone?

Orange Hibiscus. (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"Everyone knows that yellow, orange, and red suggest ideas of joy and plenty." ~ Eugene Delacroix
Orange is a happy color. In summer, the color of the setting sun, the taste of sweet citrus, or sherbet or sorbet, the smell of orange muffins or fizzy soda. In fall, it is the color of the falling leaves, the skin of a pumpkin and the bouncing basketball. And flowers, one cannot forget the lilies, from bright electric orange to pastel apricot hues; the almost red of the orange orchid or the thin petals of the orange daisy. Here the Hibiscus demonstrates her fiery dress; usually white or pastel lavender, this variety is bold, exotic and evokes feelings of tiki torches, leis and hot tropical nights. Luau anyone?
