The flora is fantastic.The hibicus is the state flower. I grow 2 plants on my patio, but they are not as beautiful as in their native tropical weather. We got caught in a rain storm driving down the road and could not do anything but follow the car in front of us. Very unnerving, but at least it was warm rain!
I have not done any sewing or crafting for 3 weeks and it is about time I got back to it. I have a new wall hanging in the works and will post it when I get the borders on. I am really pleased with it. The Chat Noir cross stitch is almost done ( I had 5 hours on the plane to work on it) and I will make the frame for it and post that soon too. But the house was calling for a major clean today, and I had a ton of office work so no sewing today.
I bought a little cookbook to try out some Hawaiian recipes, so I am excited about to try those out. That's about all the reading I have done except for work. I did buy a book on making crochet leis. have no idea what I will do with them but it looked like too much fun.
