Being from tropical Australia originally, I’ve always lived with bananas growing in my back yard. But I had to come all the way to Maui to discover this little jewel. It looks just like a small bunch of RED bananas, but has a GORGEOUS orchid pink banana ‘flower’ on it. It looks totally spectacular in flower arrangements and people are always fascinated by it. And no, you can’t EAT these!!!
When I saw the purple beach & dancing lady, I just had to smile! Doesn’t it just say “MAUI”? An extra celebration, too, today with the return of the rain after three VERY dry weeks and Kona vog. My garden gives thanks! It’s a soft Kona rain, perfect for snuggling up and relaxing with your sweetie.
Great pics – thank you, as always, Jungle John!
Jeff and I were sitting outside having coffee this morning – our morning ritual – really appreciating the beauty that is surrounding us. We have a “day off” today. Where to go? What to do? Why not Twin Falls, which is literally one mile down the road from us – just a little towards Pa’ia. Insider’s hint: Go LATE in the afternoon, after all the on-the-way-to-Hana traffic has disappeared, and the sun’s rays slant through all the greenery to softly light up the pools! “Mahalo” Chuck for this gorgeous pic!
