After The Rain--The Blooms

Many plants are blooming on Maui and at our home--assisted, no doubt, by the generous rainfall of recent weeks. The mosquito plants on one of our decks are blooming tiny pink flowers. I just planted these mosquito plants about a year ago, and since that time, they've grown a LOT.

Mosquito plants are so named because they keep away mosquitoes. Click here if you'd like to read more about mosquito plants.
