Kissing the Flowers

July 28, 1996

I enjoyed reading the article by Heidi Haughy Cusick ("Cabin Fever," June 30), particularly since I have not been through Mendocino County for over 30 years. The author, however, states that Beija Flor is Portuguese for beautiful flower. Not so. Beija Flor, loosely translated, means "flower kisser" and is an appropriate name for that pretty creature the hummingbird. If Ms. Cusick had kept her eyes peeled, she would probably have spotted hummingbird logos at the hideaway.
