Flowers Of Puerto Viarta For Pink Saturday

I have missed the last couple of Pink Saturday's because I was away on vacation in Puerto Viarta, Mexico. I want to thank all that came by and left me such sweet comments. I had the best time just laying on the beach and soaking up all the local beauty.
I was able to take many pictures of the flowers around me, but sadly missed many. You just can't count on getting pictures when you are riding around in a taxi. HA! Somehow, it just doesn't work out the way you might wish it to.

Because the weather is tropical, there are lots of hibiscus in all colors and vary from smaller blooms to very large blooms. I thought this one would be perfect to show off for today. Love the darker insides.


The way the white of the center radiates outward was fascinating to me.

What's not to love about a double red?

I want a pot like this on my patio. We grow lots of bougainvillea's in the desert, they are perfect for our weather and can with stand the heat of summer.

Pretty blooms and a plant that pretty much grows all year long.
This would make a statement! What an entrance into the yard.

Tropical weather, tropical flowers. When I worked in a florist we used to charge $6.00 for one stem of ginger. Wow.

We could get $25.00 for one stem of Heliconias.

Tropical leaves are a must for a tropical arrangement. Love the colors of this plant. Can you imagine awakening to something so beautiful each and every day?
Happy Pink Saturday everyone. I hope you enjoyed my offering this week. I appreciate you coming along for the ride. If you would like to see more, please visit Beverly from How Sweet The Sound. There you will find the list of Pink participants.
Thanks again sweet Beverly for all you do each week. We know that you work very hard for us. See you next week, be safe and have a lovely weekend.

Hi and Welcome Home, Char,
My what a beautiful place you stayed and the flowers are just gorgeous! I know how wonderful it is to walk on the beach and lie in the warm sand! Oh, lucky you!!!

My Mom had all of those plants in her yard...it was just beautiful, but then she lived in La Jolla where all those plants thrive.

So glad you are back! You were missed!
Happy Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday Char Sweetie...
Oh my what a gorgeous share today. So you have been lounging on the beaches of Puerto Viarta hu? Oh you lucky duck. I bet the sand is beautiful there, and just to lounge and soak up a few rays and a little peace and quiet. No place like home, but it is also nice sometimes to see a new landscape for a few days.

The hibiscus are exquisite. I love the colors, they are SO vibrant and beautiful. I love that little arbor covered with blooms. How beautiful that is.

Thank you sweet friend for taking me along. I have so enjoyed my visit. Have a glorious weekend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Hi Char, What a fabulous vacation you had and we are thrilled you took pink pictures to share with all of us. My Mom used to grow hibiscus in Va. But then she has a green thumb and could grow just about anything. HPS....xo
