TREE HIBISCUS on TAAKOKA ISLAND
Since the last post featured my Trowbridge expedition to the South Pacific islands, I thought this might be a good time to display some of the tropical flowers that Mrs. Trowbridge painted in her journal. She had a strong interest in Trowbridge history, from its origin on some remote Mongolian plain to the North American rain forests. She was especially intrigued by the flora and fauna of the South Pacific islands, where Trowbridge culture thrived in a past age.
