Okay, this is just an excuse to post some pretty flower pictures.
Ma'o hau hele in Hawaiian is the state flower but is currently endangered in the wild.
These cute little birds were all around the condo (identified by Diana as a saffron finch.)
During our touring we spotted this black-necked stilt (I think.).
Bougainvillea abounds in every color.
And I found this water lily in a shopping center where we stopped for lunch.
And even the oleander is extra fancy, having double flowers instead of the single ones around Mesa.
We were hoping this was the ne ne or Hawaiian goose, but after looking it up, we realized it was just a plain old goose.
Another one I can't identify, but pretty.
Plumeria smells wonderful and is a popular lei flower.
And my caption here would be - "Under the spreading Kukui tree."
