seeing the seasons

I miss seeing the seasons come and go.  Here, on this little topical island, the land of eternal green, there are very minuscule changes in the landscaping from winter to spring to summer to fall. 

We seem to always be able to enjoy bright flowers and green trees. 
So, I'm not complaining . . . just missing the changes that mark time.

When I lived in a Taiwanese farming community, I enjoyed seeing the rice fields change. But, here in the city, there is nothing to see change. 

But then today, I saw it.  For the first time . . . a sign of a new season.  And it delighted my heart to no end.

The plumeria trees are blooming!!!! 

Plumeria (Frangipani)

It is AWESOME to be able to "see" a change and claim "wow, summer is coming."  :)


  1. Ohhh, I love plumeria trees!! They were all over when I went to Hawaii. I'm so jealous of you. :)
