Hawaii flowers, birds & words

There were a lot of birds in Hawaii we have never seen before. Java Sparrow spotted at Diamond Head.

Brazillian Cardinal at Makapuu Lookout.

There were flowers everywhere in Hawaii. I loved seeing them in the leis.

The state flower of Hawaii is the Yellow Hibiscus.

There were a lot of hibiscus.

And Plumeria which smell so nice.

I liked to learn Hawaiian words, even though I was terrible at remembering them (esp street names)...

...and I loved how they were used everywhere.

  1. I've grown plumeria at home in the past. That might be a nice way to keep that spirit of Aloha alive!
