Blooms

Earth laughs in flowers.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

If this is true, then mother nature must find Hawaii hysterical.

Most of these were taken in Waimea Valley, an enchanted place vibrating with colour. Speaking of which, this Sunday I'm taking a day-long workshop on how to dye with natural materials. I can't wait! Wishing you a colourful weekend too!

Stunning photos!
Have fun dyeing...:)

Sadly yes, blogger spit up our posts from yesterday. Luckily, I had saved mine a day ahead and just had to re-publish my latest missive from its draft...

So beautiful! I love Hawaii -- and I'm not one for warm-weather vacations.

I enjoyed yesterday's post and I wanted to comment, but an odd Blogger window popped up and wouldn't allow me to do so. Mysterious...

Yay, looks like Blogger has fixed the problem. My trip recap post is back up.

these are such fantastic images nicole
i am laughing , enjoying them totally
some of them i even recognize from my daughter's dance recital bouquet.
she loves tropical flowers like the ginger flower
Have a blast at the class but little warning once you start dyeing naturally there is no turning back.

Love the opening lines to this post. My parents just went to Hawaii last month as well, and had nothing be good things to say and beautiful pictures to show for it. I'm glad Hawaii was so amazing!

ahahah I'm laughing at Margie's comment about natural dyeing !!! You'll be hooked in no time. I'm blaming a too full month of May for not dyeing more ... and I'm really missing it.
Can't wait what you'll have made !
