Some Flowers We've Seen So Far

Gallery of Flowers

We interrupt this journal to bring you some of the flowers we've seen on our trip so far.  Since the storm is still raging here at our favorite seafront bungalow and the power is going in and out, the wifi sucks and is only available over at the dining area and even our Thai data plans are not working, we can go over to the dining area and attempt to upload flowers.  Some of these you have already seen but we thought it would be fun to put a bunch of them together in one post.

The flower section of the central market - Phnom Penh.

Bruce LellmanTo Bill ShaneyfeltI went to high school in Daytona Beach and during that time a family came down from the north to vacation and they made a little fire on the beach and roasted wieners on sticks - freshly cut oleander sticks. They all died!!
