Dat was lass week. Today I wen come in da hale from being gone all day; and da minute I wen step chru da back door, I wen start sniffing. Wat dat was? I wen explore all ova in da kitchen, den wen go into da dining room winter solarium, looked up, and no could believe it again!

Standing there, I felt like I was back home. Da fragrance was overwhelming! I get so much wai maka dat I could hardly see chru my tears, because there, right in front of me, my kahili ginger wen start to bloom!

I jass wen stand dea, tears streaming down my face, as da aroma of dis plant from home wen fill up my senses. Onaona ka pua melemele! [Fragrant is the yellow flower].

It’s hard for stay here at da computer! All I like do is go back to da solarium and get anodda whiff of dat amazing scent! It’s kinda funny… like a fragrance lag insteada jet lag. Am I back home? Am I hea in Oregon? Wit dat heady fragrance, it’s hard foa tell.

    I had to give up my garden this year, and this week they are installing a windowsill so I can hve plants inside (we had no place for them before) Maybe I will try a ginger. I have a root int he fridge starting to put out little nobbly rhizomy things. I have saved an avacado pit to try, too.
