Impressions of Maui

 Imagine looking over this edge..

And to your wonderful surprise you see this!
Wouldn't that be soooo nice right about now??
I personally think this next one would be better...
Because then I could hop on that pink Catamaran
and go search for a pirate!
As some of you may know, 
My parents have a place on the "Big Island"
But that never stopped us from going to visit the other ones...
These are all from Maui
(yes a fav of mine!)
And of course my mother forever being the Grand Dame Gardener
We can't go ANYWHERE without snapping a million photographs
of flowers.
So here are a few we got....
I am only going to post a few, not her 10 million!
These are some Protea flowers and the spiky ones are Pincushions.
They are found in the upcountry of Maui in KULA on the slopes of Haleakalc.

A red Protea...
This is the Torch Ginger Flower...
These babies love plenty of water!
And Ti Leave you can find everywhere...
They are more abundant in especially wetter areas.
Just a random shot of some of the wild ones that you will find
in tons of different spots..
 I must say.... I love all of them..
and when displayed..they are simply to die for!
But the most fun is what I saw while passing by one day...
Now maybe If I can get on that Pink Catamaran and Find a Pirate..
I could do this type of wedding!
Linking up with:



  1. Hi Cricket, Amazing photo shots! And the wedding one is sweet. Maui is our fav too. We were just there in April, and I included some of our favs in a post. Have you been to the Ma La Tavern in Lahaina? It is the best restaurant, food, view, coffee in Maui (in our opinion :).
    Have a great weekend!

  2. I want a pirate too. Let's go on a quest!

  3. Love that bright pink catamaran sail!

    Happy Thursday -

  4. Did you just get back from there? Just gorgeous. There's another paradise out there too!

  5. Gorgeous flowers! I bet the scent of flowers all over the island is intoxicating, aahhhh. I'd love to go there someday. I love the wedding flower ring! That is awesome! Seashells and starfish would be amazing, too...on the beach ;)

  6. Cat these photos have taken my breath away! How fortunate that you have Family living in one of our most beautiful States! The Man and I Honeymooned in Kauai and I have always wanted to go back some day... and take the opportunity to visit the other Islands... it was truly Magical and exceeded my expectations... a slice of Heaven on Earth! Your Dear Mom sounds like me, I think during our Honeymoon I took 11 rolls of photos in the 3 days we were there! *winks* But those photos hold so many precious memories and that is something you can never have too many of! Give your Pirate a hug from me...

    Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian
