These are recently printed cards featuring lovely red hibiscus and delicate Mountain Apple blossoms. Although the yellow hibiscus is Hawaii's state flower, the red hibiscus seems more common in many parks, gardens, and neighborhoods. We have a Mountain Apple tree in our yard and I love to look at the rich red blossoms that resemble the lehua. The Mountain Apple blossoms precede the juicy red fruits to come. The tendril-like blossoms eventually fall and carpet the ground, and the fruits will then begin to grow. In a few months, we should have some luscious ruby red mountain apples to eat. It will be delicious, or as we say in Hawaii, "Some ono!"
