a different taste

we took a mini vacation to a little
island community this last week...
stayed in a condo of family members
and looked at homes in the area.

it was a different taste of tropical
plush - textures, shapes, colors, and
smell...all the senses were exposed to
a real treat...

do not sit on a bench under one of these -
nor should you ever park your car under one
of these...they are used a lot for landscape
but no one usually looks up to make sure it
is not a coconut palm tree!

love the grasses and the way each little
strand blows with the smallest breeze!

the strangest tree - blossoms: no leaves...
and we have been told if a branch breaks off
just stick it in the ground and it will root
on its own.

the textures were really contrasting...
layers of stick trees, hibiscus, smooth
rounded leaves and grasses...

All very calming to the eye, relaxing...
and renewing. Just what a mini vacation
should be.
