The plumeria flower found throughout Polynesia is a favorite in Hawaii. It’s overwhelming scented flower was strung into floral leis and used especially by the hula girls. Dancing to the strum of the ukulele the plumeria leis enhanced the beauty of the dancer. 45″ x 45″ Designed by John Serrao/js668-bk8
Every Tuesdays and Thursdays at 2:00pm during my High School Summers I danced with my Hula Halau at the Ala Moana Center Stage. I needed to have all my costumes ironed and prepped and my leis sewn for each performance. But unlike my other Hula Sisters it was easy for me to find the plumeria blossoms. My paternal grandparents had their own plumeria garden right in their own back yard. So I spent my mornings picking and stringing the beautiful plumeria leis.
