Wordless Wednesday: Flora from Hawaii

What better way to brighten your day than send you a huge bouquet of flowers from Hawaii?!?!  I thought about having a contest to see who could name all the different varieties because I am afraid I do not know them all.  I will try to identify them.  These flowers are for you my dear readers, especially you who need some beauty and color in your day today.  You know who you are.  To continue from my post yesterday, HUGS and LOVE to you who are fighting the good fight and helping others fight along side them.
These beautiful trees were everywhere!

Bird of Paradise  By the way, the next eleven pictures were taken at Pearl Harbor!


Orchid?

Hibiscus?

 Plumeria?



 Cactus and other green plants plus aloe





I know these next two look like they were taken in a rain forest, but they were growing between our hotel and the Royal Hawiian.



 Now we have moved on to Maui.





Our cleaning crew left us a little romantic message with our Aloha greetings flowers, aka leis,  from the Maui airport.  Awwwwww. ;-)

From our 12hour trip called "The Road to Hana."  I will blog more about this journey later!


 This was a garden at our lunch site.




Across from out lunch spot live the owners of Neutrogena .  Here is their lane.


Sorry, but this was taken "on the go!"  The round balls growing from the tree are macadamia  nuts!  YUM!


The church at Charles Lindbergh's burial site.

A banyan tree


Wild goats and a cool backdrop.


I have no clue, but I loved this flower, and it was growing right outside a restroom !

 See?  Nice camo job!

Hope these brightened your day!

  6. These photos are so nice! I could almost feel the sun and warmth from them! The flowers are so beautiful that they almost don't seem real, though I know they are.

  7. your pics are amazing..... I guess I didn't pay attention to the flowers at Pearl Harbor. I LOVE flora and fauna but for some reason I missed all that beauty.
