My Little Hawaii



Wake up. Coffee. Still trying to wake up whilst packing school lunch and bags. Maybe I need to make my coffee a little stronger. Yes, more coffee. Then I walk outside to this. Right in my front yard. My hibiscus trees all in flower. For a moment I feel like like I am in Hawaii. That is enough to lift my spirits today. Have a great day!

  1. Must be all the rain Simone, because mine have burst into flower too. Even though our labrador loves to eat the flower buds off and throw them all over the backyard! K xx

  2. Coffee and hibiscus...great combination. We're having to make do in Canberra with the lovely colours of autumn instead...not many pretty flowers left now. Queensland...beautiful one day, perfect the next right?

  7. Well, we certainly don't have much chance of walking outside and seeing flowers like that at the moment in Melbourne. Will have to settle on some nice new cushion fabric instead perhaps? What a sweet little pick-me-up.

  9. Love your Hawaii post:)
    I love hibiscus and have a rainbow of them around my house! Now you just need a cup of Kona coffee to go with your Hawaiian morning.

    I also have a question: I am looking to buy some drift wood (thin) to put in a vase. Do you know of any good places to find it (besides the beach:) ?
