Living on an island is not just about the amazing blue water, the soft sand at the beach, time spent paddle-boarding, and soul-refreshing cocktails.
Don’t get me wrong – those are all MAJOR PROS to tropical living, but island life is still life. We islanders can get just as distracted from what’s important by the activities of our daily existence as those living elsewhere can. Even though we are moving at a slower rate than most (island time is real), we can still sometimes forget to stop and appreciate the natural beauty of our rocks.
Currently, my island is in full, beautiful bloom and I’ve been making an effort to soak it up whenever I can.
The flowers of Bermuda are all showing off and everything looks and smells glorious. Just on my property alone I am amazed by all the colorful flowers, bushes, and trees. I’ve been keeping my eyes wide open to spot all the blooms I can, making sure I stop and smell all the different aromas, especially when driving my scooter around the rock.
And so I must leave you now with these photos – off to do my island flower appreciation for the day (before paddle-boarding, but of course)!
Is your island in bloom too? What are your favorite tropical flowers to spot?
