Dole Plantation - Pineapple Experience

Had some fun with little Liam at the Dole Plantation - found a pearl in an oyster, rode the Pineapple Express, enjoyed some delicious Pineapple Whip and pulled-pork sandwiches - my favorite!  Visited the botanical gardens for awhile as well... more pictures of Hawaii to come.

Proof! Here's Proof I CAN Garden

After feeling pretty bummed about all my house plants killing over, I was delighted to discover my delicate lime tree has actual LIMES on it this spring!  I've nursed this thing for three years and I am determined to have those baby buds produce something great later this summer. 

Happy Friday!

Desert Morning Blossoms

Got out for a much needed stress-free (early) morning drive through the desert.  Tried to bring the dogs along but neither of them wanted to jump in the Jeep - their loss.  Saw a couple of jack rabbits and a glimpse of a coyote, some quail and NO snakes... whew!

Happy Wednesday - Jess

Crunchy House Plants

This is the current state of what used to be my beautiful palm and ferns.  I don't know what the deal is, but it just makes me sad :(  I thought these two species would be a sure-deal with the tag that read "easy to grow" and all the information I got off the internet about which plants were best for purifying the indoor air and which ones were great for people who don't know much about growing plants.  Bummer!

Polynesian Cultural Center

Another great place to visit on Oahu - the Polynesian Cultural Center.  Maori warriors, Samoan coconut tree climbers, Ali'i Luau singers, Tahitian dancers, Tongan drummers - couldn't get it all in, but here's some of my favorites.  See more fantastic images and information on the PCC website HERE.

Scenes From Germaine's Luau

My best girl Eva took me to Germaine's Luau for a good ol' girls' night out!  Great food, wonderful entertainment... and amazing Polynesian cultural experience.

Oh.  My.  Goodness.  
I could get used to that sunset every evening.
