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.

There is a shopping mall in Shenyang called Wan Xiang Cheng. The wan xiang means 10,000 Elephants … No wonder I like the place. They are currently displaying gorgeous and decorative little hati. It is a promotion for all the stores in the mall. Mont Blanc on an elephant is a beautiful thing. Big smiles and lots of photos. Enjoy.
