I remember it was a cold and snowy January evening, on January 25, 2014. And, looking for Master Atiu’s blooms, I realized that it wasn’t such a place where I could find them, but the base of IHS or the Island of Moorea itself.. For my taste, it was to formal, so I thought – why not create a place where everybody could find out about the extraordinary creations of the genius hibiscus hybridizer who is Master Charles Atiu.
The same night I wrote a mail to a special lady and also my friend, Mrs. Monica Truşcă, and told her about it. She said ok, and there it started. It’s almost unbelievable that already two years passed since. This small platform collected an impressive number of views, a digit with many zeroes in tail, showing the interest of hibiscus lovers from all over the world for Moorea and for Master Charles Atiu’s work.
This blog is not about me. Nor about Master Atiu. It is about pure beauty. It is, as Master Atiu named it, A Hibiscus Sanctuary. I am proud of it, I am proud of the interest aroused around this blog, because this means that beauty in it’s purest form got to the souls of so many hibiscus lovers.
“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.”
Happy Moorea Hibiscusing 🙂
2016. A new year. With new challenges. New colors. New shapes. New love. Same talent. The one and only. Master Charles Atiu.
It is my great honour to present here, on this blog, the first 2016 creations from Master Charles Atiu’s New Collection, under the index of UMMA.
I hope it will be a year full of new and exquisite blooms.
“I love you without knowing how, or when,or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
