endures through the years.

    If your visiting the islands I’m so envious. It’s been too many years since I was there.

  6. Are you there now? If you are, have a great time. What a wonderful place to be-soft ocean breezes, lots of warm sunshine, and not a care in the world. I LOVE your rhyme on the colors–too clever and cute. Yes, they are mums in my yard. I look forward to them blooming again this fall. Mickie 🙂
