Tropical Beauties of Fiji

Some of my favorite things about Fiji are the incredible flowers: hibiscus, bougainvillea, and all manner of beauties I don’t even know the names of. In between downpours I wandered through the Sonaisali Island Resort, scarcely meeting a soul on my sojourns since most folks were sensible enough to stay in out of the rain.

The blossoms looked especially vivid during this rainy season, their leaves thriving and glossy, each little petal and bud glistening with rain drops.

Rain is a funny thing. When I’m at home I try to get out of it as soon as possible. Not in Fiji. There I lingered in it, letting it soak my hair and trickle down my face. It is warm and healing there, soothing to body and spirit, leaving the skin soft, clean and hydrated – a blissful feeling after nearly 20 hours of travel.

What are your favorite tropical flowers?

Barbara - I love tropical flowers. I think my favorite is flame ginger.

Alina - Hi Krista,
I do love hibiscus just like you.
Great photos!

Fifi Flowers - Gorgeous photos!

Kimberly - Wonderfully captured! I love your photography, the colors are so crisp, really nice:)

Carole 68 - These pictures are really gorgeous, and a welcome change of the grey winter weather (though today the sun came out and we had something like 15ยฐC, which is quite unusual for January). I really love the ones in the second picture, they are delicate and elegant.

Annie - So pretty! I need some of the warm, healing rain! Sounds amazing…

Velva - Oh my God, now you are in Fiji (sigh). You lucky, lucky person. ๐Ÿ™‚

The flowers are beautiful. I was born and raised in Miami where we enjoyed a tropical climate. The hibiscus bushes were everywhere, along with the birds of paradise. Now, living in north Florida (the climate is not tropical) we enjoy magnolia and camelias flowers.

Have a wonderful time! Stay dry.
