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.
I love your Hawaii memories.
Bounteous, beautiful botanicals.
Beautiful tropical plants - they do look interesting, don't they?
For a little old prairie boy Hawaii vegetation was an eye opener.
Ah, what an interesting and beautiful place! The tree is just fantastic.
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.
the 3rd photo looks like the "heart" of a banana bunch.
All pictures looks good:)
Fern trees are so fascinating. Can imagine the dinos among them...
We have lots of the plant in 1st pic up in the highlands. I am also familiar with the banana flower!
I love going round our botanical gardens and having seen your pictures I might just go there again.

Heisann.... I made the post for Thursday´s Todays Flowers on Sunday, because I will be in Dublin the actual day, by accident it was presented then....Very nice shots of tropical plants on your blog today ;:OD)
Beautiful captures, Denise! I think if I ever get the chance to go to Hawaii I may wish to stay! Hope you are having a great week. Thank you so much for sharing. :)
Very different from the sort of plants I'm used to!
Kauai... I thought that tree looked tropical! :-)
Love the tropical and subtropical flora. Thnks for sharing.

Beautiful! I would love to get to Hawaii one day!
Hi Denise, yet another set of super images, this time of tropical plants. Looks a superb place to visit with all its lush vegetation,hope you both had a wonderful visit . Have a good week. Regards John
Bananas and ferns -- typically Hawaiian.
Great views, Denise! Can just imagine you having a good time, keeping the camera clicking while you were there! Many thanks for sharing your impressions with ALL SEASONS! Wishing you a lovely week:)
Beautiful shots. I've never been there, but it's on my "bucket list"!Thanks for sharing at https://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2016/10/along-way.html
Denise, I know these well and I'm looking forward to seeing these treasures again on Maui in February. Thanks for coming to the party this week and I hope that you will be able to stop back again.
Very nice! I love ferns.
Beautiful photos! Thanks for stopping by my blog.
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
Isn't nature a wonderful artistMollyxxx
Very nice. I like tropical plants. (And now that it's getting colder where I am, seeing your photos makes me think warm thoughts.)
Some lovely botanicals. The bark on that tree is so pretty.
Beautiful ! I love the tree bark that is papery and red!
Very nice to see these Denise, thank you.Isn't the bark most special - the colours are lovely.All the best Jan
Wow, that vegetation sure is exotic!
I love your mosaics...it has been a long time since I have done any memes. I need to get involved again...it has just been a touch time here with my Dad's death and health... hugs to you Denise..
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!
