  1. All strangely beautiful! The first one is so beautiful, and it looks like something that could have been here for thousands of years. The third picture looks like a fancy screw!! See all the threads on the stem? I have never seen a plant like that! I suppose it is exclusively Hawaiian.

  5. Beautiful foliage shots, the way you've captured the light and shade on the leaves and bark of the tree trunk is very artistic. What a wonderful trip you must have had, thanks for joining us for Mosaic Monday this week.

  32. Hello Denise! It must be so nice to see such wonders from up close; I've learned about the rainbow trees from various photos on different blogs (i think that is a part of trunk of this tree). It's always captivating to have a look at new images from far away places from the worldwide. Nature is amazing seen through your camera lens. A very interesting series of details from vegetation. Many thanks for sharing them and a lovely day and week to you, too! Alexa

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
