You can make a lei

Miriam and Alice made leis and flower bracelets from plumeria blossoms that they gathered this morning. None of us had known that you could make a lei yourself. They were visiting a coffe plantation, the National Historic Park at Hononaunau, and a macadamia-candy making shop while we were on the dive boat: a lady in one shop told them how to gather the flowers and make the leis. They bought a very long needle and thread so that they could string all the blossoms together.
