Reflecting on Paradise in Punta Cana Dominican Republic

Well Linda and I are back in Lancaster,Ohio from Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. We enjoy sharing our photos and hope you enjoy them.

scenicreflections A Weekend Reflections & Scenic Sunday post. From the Paradise of Punta Cana.

I found the morning to be a good time to do a little reflecting at the pool.

On the way back to the room I would pass Bird of Paradise, Crane Flower (Strelitzia reginae) which symbolizes joyfulness. It also symbolizes magnificence. It can also be used to indicate exciting and wonderful anticipation.

Those reflections are magnificent - and that water looks so inviting. The bird of paradise is an amazing flower - I can see why its called a crane flower.

I have always thought gardening and paradise were much the same thing. Happy dreaming.
