Very pretty, Jacob. I don't think we have them up in New England, either. The flowers look a bit like pink lilacs, I think, but they are growing on a tree instead of a multi-stem bush.

OMG!!! I love these only they---well, they can grow here but they will not bloom. Something about the gray skies and no sun puts them off. babies!! MB

Hello----Alpacas are raised for their fiber. It is used to make sweaters, hats, jackets or whatever you would like. It is very soft and strong and very expensive. MB

Ha, a crepe you can't eat. Never heard of such a thing.

We don't have these around here and it is too bad because they are beautiful! I wonder if they are very fragrant. I would guess that they are.

Wonderful!

Rehgarding your question: No, it's not me in a 'frog suit', I just took the shots and they didn't even noticed me. Besides I only shoot with a camera even when it's underwater. :-)

Another one of those tropical plants that freezes out up here. It is so pretty though.
