I have many many more pictures from Hawaii that I haven't posted -- I think I'm still absorbing the experience.
Here is a brief look at the "plant" category from my photos.
At the Dole plantation...
I'm entranced by the banyans.
Isn't this amazing?! Like a royal headdress...
I've never seen a wildflower in such an exquisite shape. (Purple and green, obviously.)
Such graceful shapes.
These trees were all over Waikiki. The leaves are green on the top and red on the bottom. Dramatic!
I read in the paper this morning that Dallas had the 4th worst weather this winter of all cities in the US compared to their average winters. We were lucky to escape for a week.
