As I was walking today, these unusual varieties caught my eye. The first picture is the "Ti" leaf plant. The varigated red and green leaves are not the normal "Ti." Behind it is the red "Ti" and is commonplace. Of course, the original is the green "Ti" leaf, found at most every home. ( I have some in my yard too!)
The second picture is the "bird of paradise." The difference is that there were about four to a stem, whereas there unsually is only one! These plants are beautiful to decorate in a vase and lasts a very, long time.
Somebody likes the seven dwarfs! Snow white was nowhere to be found, but, they are such a cute ornament for your yard.
This is such a great idea! The side area of an apartment complex was a vegetable garden. Compared to other possible fill-ins, it's useful and ono (tasty) too! Also, in Hawaii, you can grow food year round!
I was wondering what this guy was doing and realized that he was watering plants in some trays out on the ledge. Now, don't ask me how he got it there! He is making use of that ledge! Just to let you know, he was on the eight floor of the apartment complex, not good if you have vertigo!
The pink highlighter is definitely PINK, so I hope that you can easily see the areas that were completed today which are in yellow highlight. I walked 2.7miles to complete a lot of side streets missed previously. I have to admit, I didn't feel like walking today. I guess that I was feeling lazy! But, I started, and noticed my pace is improving and I'm feeling more centered and surefooted. Actually, my disposition has improved likewise. You can't separate the physical from the mental no matter how much you try. I'm enjoying the added bonus.
Bright red, orange and yellow, I couldn't help noticing this blossom. For the life of me, I can't identify it yet, but, promise to let you know once I find out. * A hui hou! (remember what that means?)
*I will highlight hawaiian words from now on in yellow so that you can learn some hawaiian words and/or phrases as you continue with me on this journey!
