Royally hot, loud and proud

The Royal Poincianna (delonix regia) or Flamboyant for some of us, is showing off her dazzling beauty around the island. The season arrives very early this year, normally they bloom in July and August. Mine are slowly coming into bloom and won't be ready for another few weeks. For more hot loud and proud please visit a plant fanatic in Hawaii .

They say great minds think alike! Andrea, who lives in the Philippines has done a post about the same tree on her blog , under the same meme, hot loud and proud. I am linking her post to mine, so please go over to visit her at Andrea in this lifetime

This and that

Last weekend, I attended our local manufacturer's exhibition BMEX. I hadn't been for many years and it hasn't changed much. However I spotted some new faces and talent. The above products are from two designers whom I think will go places. I recommended that they should place their products on to reach a wider market.

Garden Bloggers Bloom Day May 15th 2010

Welcome to Garden Bloggers Bloom Day where gardeners post photos of what is blooming in their gardens . My pink mussenda is in its glory. It was trimmed back in March and I can't believe the profusion of blooms it has on it now. To see more of what is blooming in other gardens please take a stroll over to may dreams gardens

I haven't been posting regularly because I have been preoccupied with the completion my kitchen . I am still waiting on counter tops. My supplier had sold the one I paid for and didn't want to renegotiate with me for a similar priced slab. He wanted me to buy another slab for more money. I kindly asked for a full refund and went elsewhere. I found another after agonizing over several designs. It is costing me more but I feel better than dealing with the former supplier.
