Bloom Where You are Planted






One of the islands had a lot more vegetation on it.
There were actually some flowers.  The Galapagos cotton flower
is in the hibiscus family...looked very similar to one.  The yellow
cordia had small yellow flowers and attracted lots of
bees and butterflies.  In fact, the guide told us not to
wear yellow or pink, so the bees and wasps would not
bother us.  There was also a poison apple tree that had small
hard green fruit on it that was poisonous for humans.

The blossoms of the yellow cordia were falling on the ground,  and we
saw one of the large land iguanas eating them!  I guess there is a use for
all of the elements on the island.
