People in Hawaii can go outside without a mask!
Yay - we have turned a corner and it feels great.  Whether you're vaccinated or not, you can take off the face mask when outdoors, providing it's not a crowded event that is.  Our sunny and breezy weather makes for a perfect case of not needing that extra protection from the Corona virus.
Here's a link to the Maui News update ...
Of course, some will still choose to wear the mask, and that's OK.  I really think the masks will be here to stay and I won't mind using one when the time is … (16 comments)

Tropical flowers in the jungle - at 810 Upper Ulumalu Rd, Haiku Maui
We saw some lovely tropical flowers today on the monthly Realtor Caravan tour.  This one property in Maui Ranch Estates was just loaded with hundreds of pots of plants and flowers.  Here's just a sample of the colorful blossoms and foliage that we encountered.

My top ten 2019 Activerain posts, and what it means.
This post is inspired by Joan Cox's post of a similar theme, which got me to checking out my own statistics of views here at Activerain.  The results are based on number of views.
While it was interesting to scroll through the years, I was quite surprised to see so many posts I completely forgot about, and realize I have a treasure trove of information I could be mining.
Back to topic though, it's no surprise that some common topics are always popular... tropical flowers, restaurants and food.

flowers: Bottlebrush tree in Kula Maui HI 96790 - 08/13/19 02:03 AM
It's an easy post - a picture of a bottlebrush tree taken while touring homes for sale in Kula Maui.  We see so many beautifully landscaped yards and I can't help but notice and take pictures. 
The upcountry climate favors more temperate species, unlike the hot and steamy north shore, or the arid lowlands by the beaches.
Kula Maui is where you can grow such fruit trees as apples and peaches, veggies like artichokes and cauliflower, along with so many other flowers and foods.

Aloha Friday - beautiful tropical flowers for you from Maui
 
I know, I know - more pretty flowers from Maui - it's not the first time I've posted such things.  But it's quick and easy and these were just taken 2 days ago while touring homes for sale in Upcountry Maui.  They are so big and beautiful and believe it or not they get good "Google juice". 
It's Friday night and I have a date with my hubby, so this is all you'll get for now.  See you soon with more updates and pretty pictures from Maui and the real estate market … (14 comments)

flowers: Pink and yellow flowers - it's springtime in Hawaii - 04/11/19 03:00 AM
Springtime in Hawaii - tropical flowers are blooming.
There's no end to the beautiful flowers in Hawaii.  Here's some colorful hibiscus flowers growing at the Hawaiian Sea Spirits Organic Vodka Distillery, in Kula Maui.  On a recent tour we enjoyed the grounds and the sugar cane plants.  It's a beautiful spot to take a tour and enjoy the scenery too.

Some you just start from cuttings, stuck in some soil.

flowers: Beautiful plumeria flowers seen in upcountry Maui - 11/13/17 02:30 PM
These beautiful plumeria flowers were photographed in upcountry Maui - Makawao, Pukalani and Haiku.  They really bring a warm tropical feeling to any property, with their delicate fragrance and soft petals.


Plumeria trees prefer a dry sandy soil and you'll see them growing in the sunny seaside towns as well.  Easy to grow from just a piece of broken branch stuck into the ground.  Strung into a lei, these flowers will brighten your day!

If you remember where the video store was (forever) then you know where to find this new little grocery store at the old pineapple cannery that's been converted to commercial and light industrial spaces.  Once upon a time, when pineapple was king on Maui, the Pauwela Cannery was a busy hub of activity where the train came and went, transporting workers and delivering canned pineapples for shipment to the mainland.  I find it hard … (6 comments)

flowers: My veggie and flower garden in Haiku Maui is always growing - 08/27/17 09:29 PM
My gardens in Haiku Maui are always growing and we usually have a series of ongoing garden patches, so there will always be something to harvest.  Ideally we'll start a new section every couple of months, but in the depth of winter we just let it all go to give ourselves a break.  New plants are started from seeds on a regular basis, or whenever I remember to do it.  I'm lucky to have a farmer husband who will prepare the soil and add all the organic amendments, and leaves it to me to get creative with the growing.

flowers: Spring flowers on Maui - ti leaf blossoms - 03/16/17 08:52 PM
Spring flowers on Maui - Yes we do have seasons in Hawaii, and you notice different trees and flowers that bloom at different times of the year.  You may not have heard of ti (pronounced tea) leaves, but they are common and almost every yard will have them.  The leaves grow all year and have many uses in the home and kitchen.  Wrap food in them for cooking, or serve food on them as makeshift paper plates.

flowers: Beautiful peacocks at the Garden of Eden, Maui Hawaii - 01/16/17 05:22 PM
If you get a chance to visit the Garden of Eden on Maui, you'll see these beautiful peacocks strutting around the grounds.  It's a botanical attraction on the road to Hana, and well worth the visit.  The 33 acre park has been planted with all sorts of interesting tropical trees and flowers, with walking paths throughout.  If you don't feel much like walking, you can just drive around and still see a lot of lovely scenery, with some lookout spots just a short walk from the car.  You'll see waterfalls and ocean views, among other sights.

flowers: It's pumpkin time at the Kula Country Farms, Kula Maui - 10/16/16 07:10 PM
October means pumpkin time at Kula Country Farms, in Kula Maui.  Stop in for the free tour of their pumpkin patch and pick out your own big ones and small ones for carving and decorating.  You can grab a snack and refreshments here because you'll probably stay a while.  It's very inviting and there's lots of parking.
Good harvest.  Look at the variety of big orange pumpkins and gourds for sale!  It's been a good harvest this year and the ground is covered with these fruits of the fall season.  White ones, green ones, striped and spotted ones too!

It was a beautiful sunny day on Saturday for the annual event that brings out the whole Haiku community.

It keeps getting bigger each year and it was nice to see many more restaurants participating with lots of food trucks. The variety of flowers and plants is amazing.
A lot of things are put together by the kids at Haiku Elementary School which is just next door.

I came for the food and to take pictures, and of course, talk story with old friends.
