I’ve had several people ask me what I loved most about Hawaii. Aside from being with my in-laws, whom I adore, and seeing my children’s so happy, I’d have to say the natural beauty of the island was right up at the top of my list.
Everywhere we went there was something greener, more colorful or more unique than the day before. Here are a few of the lovelies I wanted to share with you.
These tiny ferns were growing out of the wall along my in-laws driveway. They made me happy every time I looked at them!
Also on the property was this giant urn filled with long grass and tiny blue fish. Owlie was happy to visit the fish each day and help feed them. I was happy to stare at them and be mesmerized.
This plant was one of the best on the island. It’s straight out of a Dr. Seuss book! Don’t you just want to reach out and touch it?
The leaves on this tree reminded me of giant hearts. How could I not love? And when I say giant, I mean it – this leaf was taller than Owlie!
One day as we were leaving the house, I caught sight of what I thought was a Monarch butterfly on a bush in front of the car. It turned out to be a moth – but it was still awesome that I caught it on camera.
Okay, last one. These trees made my nature lover’s life complete. So twisty. So tall. So green when it should be bleak and wintery. The trees in Hawaii were amazing.
Hopefully these cheery photographs have brightened your day. I’m going to spend many moments today looking at these pictures in between combing and denitting Hannie B.’s hair . . . we’ve been stricken with a disastrous case of head lice. Any good thoughts you can send our way would be much appreciated.
Sigh. Hawaii seems like it was a year ago.
