Blooms of Maui....

This is a Silver Sword Plant and the only place in the world it grows in Maui.  The live, bloom then die. 
Just a few pictures of some of the wonderful, lush plant and floral life in Maui.  Even the weeds on the side of the road bloom.  So beautiful!  I wish some of this would grow in my yard!

Scenery in Maui...

Sunsets in Maui are spectacular.  We tried to find a new spot to watch the sunset every night.  They are AMAZING!

Mount Haleakala Crater...My very favorite place on the island!  It is 3,000 feet deep, 7.5 miles long and 2.5 miles wide with a total circumference of 22 miles.

You are at 10,023 feet above sea level at Mount Haleakala.  It is an active, but currently not erupting volcano.  I think this is where the clouds come to sleep at night!

Iao Needle (Iao Valley State Park)

West Maui Mountains

No beach is private....you can go to any beach that you want!

Everything blooms in Maui!

Just got back from paradise!  7 days on the island of Maui.  It is truly amazing and the closest thing to paradise I have ever seen.  A group of friends go every two years and this year was just as great as the very first.  Not enough memory space to include all the amazing pictures, but you get the idea.  I will post some of the wonderful flowers you see on the island later this week.  I am trying to get my body back to the 5 hour time different and need to go to bed!  Aloha!

Dealers at the Homestead Show in Hico...

There were so many incredible dealers at the Homestead Antique Show in Hico last weekend...I had a hard time picking out samples...I could have put on 100 more!  So many talented folks who really did a great job on product and design.  There is just something so special about this show, the dealers act like they have known you for ever and you are family.  I know this has to convey to the shoppers.  Out hosts, Mike and Brenda have a lot to do with it.  I am already planning for the Fall Show in October and looking forward to seeing all my buddies.  I need to step up my game based on these pictures!
