Hawaiian Hues

Have I mentioned how beautiful the colors are in Hawaii? In addition to the luscious greens and the blue Pacific, you’ll see the following:

Hong Kong orchid tree

Hawaiian shirts

Hawaiian shirts in shades of pink and orange


off-white plumeria with yellow centers (On the road to Hana, we stopped and bought leis made from plumeria, and the incredible aroma floated up to us all day long.)

dark pink hibiscus

Great weekend, everyone!

    These colorful pictures are such a treat. I like the wild ginger and the succulents with the timber a lot.

    Beautiful photos and the colors really are stunning! Have a wonderful weekend 🙂

  3. The wild ginger is very beautiful and the Hawaiian shirts look so good in a row and so bad once removed from the shop:)

    • Oh, that is so funny! It is true–you think you’ll wear stuff like hibiscus earrings and Hawaiian shirts when you get home, but they just don’t look right outside of Hawaii. Except maybe in Florida or California. I look at my kukui nut bracelet from time to time for the good memories. 🙂

  5. I love the vibrant colors! It’s lovely to see them all one after the other. Nature is really on display in Hawaii.

  6. love love love that phone booth! And the succulents too. the frangipanis (or, plumeria) – I can smell them from here! Thanks for this brightness!

    Spectacular array, Carole! I got a kick out of the flower-decorated phone booth. Difficult choosing a favourite but since I’ve never seen wild ginger, that’s where I’m leaning!

    I hate the way birds of paradise smell … or I might be thinking of that large white flower with yellow and pink insides. Does plumeria have another name?
