The Lundkvist Garden, Leilani, Hawaii Part SEVEN

50 posts in this topic

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

Guys, gals, whoever, it was starting to get dark, even in the tropics, some things you just can't get away from. Like the Flying Silver Sausage. Or the . ..

Okay, I'm sure in Bangkok, the oriental city, nearer the Equator, with the creme de la creme of the palm world

Ahem.

Never been there, yet.

So far Hawaii rocks the house, makes Florida seem like, well, Ohio by comparison . . .

No! NO! Joking. Well, up to a point!

KPL and the place, look at the palms, the walls, oh mommy mommy SAY A PRAYER FOR ME.

Oh.

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.
