Tropical foliage

Tropical foliage at Hawaii Tropical Bioreserve and Garden

This week’s Sunday Stills challenge theme is ‘Evergreen.’ See more responses here.

In Hawaii’s mild climate, a few trees, such as plumeria, will shed their leaves for a short while in the depths of our not-so-bitter winter. For the most part though, the island is green year-round, particularly in the wetter parts, which is where these photos were taken.

The trees remain green. The vines which climb the trees are green, and other colors too. The foliage around the trees is green. In short, the landscape is evergreen.

              Yes, it is bright and sunny and the thunder is beating down our eardrums here. A friend of mine started me on the Prime Series called Silent Witnesses. It has 21 seasons, I think, but I’ve been watching about a month now every chance I get. I don’t think I’ll ever run out of them!

              You will run out. We did goodness knows how many series of Midsomer Murders and have ended up in the current series. They’re very addictive though. Good luck with the thunder and flooding.

              Thanks Graham. I went for a hike today. It is good to see water in the dry creek beds. I’ve never heard of Midsomer Murders, so I’ll have to check it out.

      Decent soil, warm temperatures, and lots of rain make for prolific growth. I was over on the east side of the island again today and wanted to stop and take photos every five minutes.
