How right it is

I love flowers.  I take so many pictures of the blooms and colors, petals and leaves, bugs crawling their way to lunch.  What do I do in winter?  Flowers turn into snow.  Leafless trees hold that lonely beauty all their own.

In Hawaii, there were so many things to see.  On one hike, the guide said, “This is one place where you keep your camera ready the entire time.”  I was in the right place.

Enjoy some of my favorite sights from Hawaii.  Identification thanks to this website, http://wildlifeofhawaii.com/flowers/common-name/l/, and random Googling.

How right it is

to love flowers and the greenery

of pines and ivy and hawthorn hedges;

they have been with us

from the very beginning.

-Vincent Van Gogh

  1. I’ve been taking pictures of flowers since I was 11. Your photos are beautiful. I am incredibly fond of the white ginger.
