Merry Monday ~ A Tropical Theme

Hi Friends!  Lori has selected a "tropical" theme for this inspirational photo

 I just wanted to show you these POINSETTIAS that Linda and I spotted growing wild along the side of the road on the Big Island last November.  We were shocked to see these and had to stop and inspect them...sure enough that is exactly what they are!
