One of the reasons I take photos is to help me remember something. Living in Indianapolis we have a limited flower season, and I enjoy every minute of it. But it is short, so when I travel, I like to photograph flowers along to the way, to keep the warm memories alive.
This lovely flower was on the side of a road in Hawaii. There were so many lovely ones along the way it was difficult to select my favorite. But since this is the one I chose on that day, in my memory it is my favorite.
And now, on a cold winter morning, the image brightens my day.
