The scenery is greenery

Foliage at Hawaii Tropical Bioreserve and Garden

This week’s Sunday Stills Monthly Color Challenge is ‘Green.’ See more responses here. One of my favorite spots on the island is Hawai’i Tropical Bioreserve & Garden and I stopped by there again just last week. As luck would have it, I took a few photos – OK, more than 200; I can’t help it. Many of them – OK, all of them – featured some shade of green. It is a tropical garden after all. Here’s a selection.

All sorts of greens, all sorts of patterns!

Going green. That’s what fronds are for!

Why the long faces? things are looking up.

There’s a gecko in two of these photos. There’s probably geckos in all three, but two are visible.

    Wonderfully green and I would have taken too many photos as well. Found the other gecko after a while and I usually spot birds and animals quickly. A beautiful place. Thanks for all of the photos as Terri said 🙂

    I loved the Hilo Bioreserve when we were there, Graham! I can’t believe it’s been four years! I think this is the most images I have seen in one blog post from you! All that green–I like green when it is so rich it hurts the eyes! I have a green gecko in my media files–they are so cute!

      I do an occasional post with many images, but I thought this one was in order. This visit, the gardens were getting a bit of a makeover, some for refreshing, some for dealing with weather damage. It was less jungly, more open. I’ll be interested to see what the ydo with the newly opened areas.
