I went back to Hawaii, for a high school reunion for the first time in many years. It was like a magical discovery of my youth again and an opportunity to fall in love once again with the absolute beauty of the Hawaiian Islands.
I stayed with a high school friend, who had a lovely condo overlooking Hawaii Kai waterways and beyond them we could see the ocean. We enjoyed having our wine on her balcony in the evening, where we watched the setting sun.
During my visit, we visited an arboretum that was filled with the colorful trees and plants of Hawaii. I found this orchid inside a hot house, completely filled with ferns and plants of Hawaii. I decided when I left the islands, I would complete a series of the plants of Hawaii, and this is the first one in the series.
