Photo Hunt Challenge - Sweet


Photo hunt challenge Sweet

You've never smelled anything so intoxicating and sweet as a flower stand in Hawaii during the Merrie Monarch Festival.  Its almost impossible to not stop by these amazing display's of color and dazzling combinations of leis on display.




Then you get hit with hints of exotic smells of plumeria, ginger and unusual fragrances that draw you in and welcome you....you must stop and look at these leis and see the loving hands that crafted each and everyone on of them.





You need to see and smell almost everyone before you decide which one will be perfect...not an easy decision.




How about something exotic and blue like this blue lei made with many petals of the blue jade vine, a rare beauty only to be seen at this beautiful festival of aloha.




Yes to receive a lei from someone special is a wonderful gift...but giving one away is even more true
with the meaning of lei giving and sharing your aloha.

  3. I can almost smell the sweet smell of each one right through my computer. The memories come flooding back to be, of walking by a lei stand, and watching them make their leis for the day, the air all around is filled with a sweet perfume.
    Beautiful photos.

  13. awesome Noel - just awesome and I recognise that blue jade plant you featured last week too. My favourite has to be that first photograph - I love all the different hues of colour in the blooms. I too just wish we could smell via the internet to experience what you have described here. Rosie:)
