Today is "Earth Day" and through out this planet, people are celebrating the earth and all of it's gifts.....as well, as educating us on how we can keep our land safe and healthy. I have been overly indulged in Maui, with tropical plants, beautiful beaches, beauty everywhere. There is an abundance of nature and it's beauty here, but Hawaiians are more than aware of what it takes to maintain this beauty. In an effort to provide a self sustaining life, the islands are using many modern as well as ancient techniques to maintain the land, sea and air.
The issues in Colorado are different, and yet, we are trying to create good care of our land in other ways. Today, just reminds us of what we should be doing every day to make the world just a little bit of a better place.
This will be my last blog from Maui..... as I will be heading home tomorrow. It's time to put the computer away, savor my last day here and say aloha to the island that I love so much.
Aloha.... see you back in Colorado next Monday.... with, hopefully, some work to show... but more likely, notes on re-entry to the 'real' world.

This week has been a celebration of Passover and of Easter (tomorrow). I can't think of a better way to send good wishes to my readers...but to send you photos of flowers that we visited at the Kula Botanical Gardens. Yesterday, the rain and clouds continued, so we decided to head up to 3300 feet and visit a public garden started by a family on 9 acres of land. The son continues to work with his parents and continue the tradition of flowers. We put on our rain gear and braced for cool temperatures and enjoyed a beautiful afternoon of beauty.

Today we received the most beautiful bouquet of flowers from friends in Colorado. The flowers include Protea, Anthurium, ginger and a Bird of Paradise along with orchids and bamboo... well, I am sure that there are other flowers too, but I don't know all of the names. I just love them, don't you??
It is windy here and lovely, as usual - just can't get enough of this place. Tomorrow, my sweet hubby and I will be renewing our wedding vows.... I promise to put a few photos on the blog in a few days. Until then, aloha!
