All right

It's been a few months since I've been to the Lundquist garden on the Big Island o'Hawaii, icky icky ucky ucky

And, well, I'm still recovering from the OD of palminess experienced there.

I mean, 5 ACRES of solid palminess, in a climate that, well, is so palmy.

Okay. Breathe deep, slow, way to go.

ALL RIGHT.

Sorry, getting excited.

It's after all, a Friday afternoon, and well, palminess reigns.

OW! I don't know, but Bo will tell me so, what's in this picture.

Holding my breath. Zen-like.

AHhh

I must admit I'm not a huge fan of the abundance of moss on the palm trunks. I like to see the trunks more clearly, some moss and slimey green is okay but I love this part of the palm, the trunk and rings etc.
