There are flowers everywhere on Maui.

In the upcountry area where we’re staying, on the slopes of Haleakala volcano, there are also lots of cattle grazing, occasional goats, roosters crowing morning ’til night, and many barking dogs protecting their owner’s turf when two walkers stop to snap a few pictures.

Here is a sampling of the most exotic flowers we saw on a short walk this afternoon.  (We won’t even mention the hibiscus and bouganvillia in every color imaginable.)

Aren’t they amazing? I hope the sight of them warms the chilled bones of my friends back home.



  1. That pink bromiliad is just incredible. Maybe you could grow it in your shower. What a walk!

  2. All I can say is lovely photos Lorna. Thanks for sharing a little piece of heaven with us while we’re going through our winter season.

    • I do feel so lucky to be warm, especially when I hear news of the freezing temps in the Northeast. TX for your appreciation of my photos. It’s a joy and inspiration to be taking pictures around here.
