Art and Orchids Bed and Breakfast

It’s time for an exercise with your imagination. Before you start with Dave’s incredible photos from our recent trip to the Big Island of Hawaii, envision warm tropical weather and a welcoming spirit of aloha. Imagine sweet scents perfuming the air. You’re in the midst of the natural paradise of Art and Orchids Bed and Breakfast near Hilo. Now that you’re relaxed and warming up, you can truly appreciate these marvelous blooms. Below are a stained-glass Cattleya, a real Cattleya, and a brilliant red hibiscus.

Since our arrival back in San Francisco, we’ve been greeted by cold winter rains. I hope these photos are helping to provide you with the same warm tropical thoughts that we’re trying to retain. Below are flowers from a Spathoglottis, a Hong Kong Orchid Tree (not a true orchid, but it smells just as sweet,) an Anthurium, and a Vireya. They’re all from the B&B’s gardens. If these blooms aren’t enough to mentally transport you to a lush, warm paradise, then maybe Art and Orchids’ great new website can help. And definitely check back here soon for some more inspiration — we have lots more Hawaii pictures to share. Now, if I can just find my sweater.
