These flowers break the rules of Cathy‘s meme ‘In a Vase on Monday’. I have to admit they certainly don’t come from my garden; they arrived at the door just now. They are a gift from the Pianist and as they are so beautiful, I am bending the rules of the meme and showing them to you.
One of our favourite places in the world is the magical island of Martinique.
Although the Pianist doesn’t notice flowers, even he can’t miss the flamboyant tropical flowers that grow there. The island’s ancient name was Madinina which means the ‘Island of Flowers’ and this is what it is. The people of Martinique are passionate about their gardens. Here are a few flowers captured on some of our visits there.
When we are not looking at flowers in Martinique, this is what we enjoy doing.
And today looking at my beautiful flowers I can recreate some of these magical memories. So many thanks to my lovely Pianist.
