Some Beautiful Flowers From Hawaii

I was so taken with the beautiful flowers that surrounded us around every corner on Oahu.

As we got off the plane.

In our hotel lobby.

In the hotel shopping area.

By the hotel pool.

On the way to Manoa Falls.

At the Lyon Arboretum by Manoa Falls.

At the beach.

And more at the beach.

In the window boxes at the restaurant.

On the Temple grounds.

From one of the Temple workers.

In Waimea Valley.

There were so many beautiful flowers

On the way to the Falls.

I think we stopped every 10 steps

To take more pictures.

I didn’t want to miss

one incredible creation from nature.

The colors

Were incredible.

The design

Spectacular.

And at Queen Kapiolani Garden.

More vibrant

Amazing colors.

One last look

Before we leave

This beautiful island

And head for home.

I was actually able to grow Hibiscus at our last home, in Layton. I need to try them again at this home, to remind us of our vacation in paradise.

Oh my gosh, thank you so much for this post. Such beautiful flowers. I can actually smell them. I grew up in Hawaii and I know most of the flowers you have photos of well. Isn’t it funny how certain scents bring back certain memories? I smell a plumeria and I’m immediately taken back to a little Japanese style house we had with a plumeria bush right outside the fron tdoor. My sisters and I used to make leis with the blooms. Good times.

Aloha Leanne! Thank you for sharing your wonderful pictures of the pua in hawaii. I was born and raised there and must say I do mist all the foliage there. I have triend to add as much colorful flowers in my backyard here in AZ, but the heat makes it rather difficult. I do have a few gardeania growing, a plumeria tree, and a few hibiscus bushes. Thanks again for sharing a little bit of home.

They are ALL so beautiful! I have to say I felt a tug at the ol’ heart looking through these. My husband and I were blessed to have lived in Hawaii for a few years and I would love to go back! :) Thank you for sharing your Hawaii with us!
