Native Hawaiian Flora

Maui is known as “the garden island” and I am quickly learning why! There are so many beautiful plants blooming here. It’s hard not to go picking all the pretty flowers that I see! Instead, I photograph them. This blog will primarily be photos of the plants and flowers I am discovering during my stay 🙂  *disclaimer– these photos have not been edited. I wanted to show you the true natural beauty*

Baby Pineapple: Just FYI– pineapples are the international symbol for welcome, so most of the homes here have little hints of pineapples in the decorating.IMG_1748 White Gardenia: Super fragrant flower! It usually is symbolic for love and purity, so is often seen in weddings 🙂 IMG_1771

White Orchids: Elegance and beauty. These are nice in the art of lei making! IMG_1749
