Blue Skyflower

Blue Skyflower (Thunbergia grandiflora)
I think this is the right name. I had a hard time finding the names of a lot of the gorgeous flowers and plants we saw. There were many of these in the gardens around our resort on the island of Moorea.

**Trip to the South Pacific - French Polynesia Society Islands of Tahiti, Moorea, and Bora Bora. This has been on my "Bucket List" of places I wanted to visit for a long time.

Beautiful light and colours, Barbara - I like how the light really helps the yellow inside the flower to stand out! This is great!
