Mililani, Hawaii: Info and Pictures

We moved to Mililani when I was 14 years old and a couple of years after this Master Planned Community started building. It is almost finished now after 35 years of "growing" ....including the Mauka side of Mililani which is across the H-2 freeway.

We have 7 recreation centers (5 of which have pools) tennis/basketball courts, 3 shopping centers with a 14 plex theater and MANY shops and restaurants. We have it all here in Central Oahu!

Picture to the left is taken from Mililani Mauka on 6/30/2007 looking to the Waianae Mountain Range.

This past Saturday afternoon (6/30/2007) we went to pick up my 25 year old daughter and 26 year old son (who relocated back home Dec. and Aug. of last year) to go to a steakhouse for a late lunch. They are both staying at my mom's 4 bedroom home in Mililani so I took pictures because she has just so many colors in just her yard alone!

Her home is situated at the very end of a cul-de-sac and in back of her house is just a gulley. I remember back in the 70's as a teenager I had gone down the gulley to take a "mini hike" and there were so many other kinds of plants and foilage; including bamboo and guava trees and lilikoi (passion fruit)! To this day I have not gone back down there as I realized later on there were most likely scorpions, centipedes and mongoose running around down there!

                                                                              

This is my old  neighborhood and up the street from mom's house.   

     

Upon entering her gate we are greeted with these lovely purple flowers!

                

         Back Yard-  Bird of Paradise                                            The Pink and Yellow Variety of Plumeria 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Back yard foilage with white flowers.                                                      "Shrimp" Flowers

   

               Bouganvilia                                                                                                 Red Roses 

 

                                                      

 

 

 

 

 

                                                       

Right fence line and gully straight down!                              Left fence line and thick foilage                                              

                                                                                                      

This picture is going back out her gate. These palms were pruned about a year ago...and shooting straight up again! 20 ft. high and in middle of all this some rubber tree plants are going at it!

I tried to call mom to get the correct names of all the flower's but she wasn't home. In any case, I wanted to share with you all the beauty of mom's pride and joy...her garden and yard. When it comes to a green thumb...that my mom has!

 

Hope you enjoyed the pictures and a "tour" through mom's yard!

What a beautiful garden!  Thank for taking the time to share it with us... up here in NY, most of these plants won't even grow... we have a hard time finding things that are hardy in the winter months.
