    I couldn’t email back to your comment on my blog, so thought I’d come over here to answer. I’m so sorry for your grief; having a yearly holiday reminder can’t be easy. The hibiscus is beautiful; you should put one behind your ear to remind you of your mother (I bet your mother wore one like that often).

    Thank you for your complient on the Clapotis; I spun 8 ounces of superwash merino into 2-ply sock weight and only used about 2/3 for it. Think I’ll use the rest with brown to make a hat and gloves to go with it for winter.

    Mokihana, what a lovely bloom and a precious gift from God – it seems He always knows what we need, huh? Love to you!

  3. Ho da nani! Mahalo nui loa ke Akua foa lovin da mokihana

  4. Oh my gosh! A hibiscus! Oh, flower of my childhood…

    Are they hardy in your garden, or do you grow them as annuals? Inquiring minds want to know!

    PS I’m so glad you liked my little vacationers!
