Flowers of Samoa

I went to Samoa, a south pacific tropical country, in mid-January. My intention was to have fun and to relax, both of which I did very well. But while I was there, there were so many beautiful colorful flowers which caught my eye, I just couldn’t resist taking some photos of them. Check them out! I’ve tried to identify as many as I could, but for the plants I don’t know, feel free to tell me if you know.

This tree is pretty gnarly.

Breadfruit tree (Artocarpus altilis). Yeah I know this doesn’t count, but look at it! I actually ate some breadfruit once while I was there, I wasn’t a fan of the taste though.

Anyways I hope you all enjoyed, perhaps I’ll take up botany as a hobby one day, who knows?
