Pink Plumeria

Growing up in California spoils you when it comes to tropical plants and flowers. While the state is not as tropical an environment as the Hawaiian islands, California landscaping includes such tropical flowers as hibiscus, bougainvillea, and orchids typically found at island locales like Hawai'i. As a result, I did not photograph many of these flowers during my Kaua'i vacation, since I am able to capture them in pictures on the mainland. Instead, I sought out unusual flowers which became quite a challenge to find during my stay on the island. After visiting Queens Bath, I came across these hot pink plumeria flowers near the parking lot. I loved how they seemed to soak in the sunlight and shine brightly in its high tree perch.
