MY MAUI: EXCEPTIONAL FLOWERS

If someone made the point that all flowers are exceptional, I would back down immediately and agree.  But these particular flowers are exceptionally exceptional, in my not-very-humble opinion.

In MAUI’S FLOWER SPLENDOR, Angela Kay Kepler makes the unromantic statement that “Flowers in natural environments do not exist for us to enjoy…they have evolved to reproduce themselves.”  While that may be true, we get to enjoy them nevertheless.  What a fringe benefit to floral reproduction.
