Teardrop Lehua

Metrosideros polymorpha; ‘Ōhi’a Lehua❤️❤️❤️In Hawaiian mythology, long story short.. Ohia and Lehua were two lovers separated by the goddess Pele. Pele desired Ohia and when she could not have him she turned him into a tree. Lehua was devastated by this transformation and out of pity the gods turned her into a flower and placed her upon the ohia tree. Separating these united lovers is not encouraged, and it is said that when a lehua flower is plucked from an ohia tree, the sky fills with rain representing the lovers’ tears.
