Kauai July 2009 – The flora and fauna of the island, part 2

Some more photos of plants and flowers seen on the island.

Flamboyant trees also known as Royal Poinciana are everwhere. The Royal Poinciana is endemic to Madagascar. The most common color seemed to be orange but I did see a few red and yellow trees.

  3. These are beautiful plants, I think being here on the island I get a little jaded to how gorgeous these species are on our little hawaiian Island!

  4. Yes Carl, Hawaii is really blessed by Gods.

    Ann, The colors are just amazing everywhere you look.

    Brian,When I used to visit a friend who lived on the island she told me she missed the fall colors in Oregon. So I found three beautiful colored maple leafs and framed them as a gift to her. She still has that gift even now 10 years later displayed in her home on Roatan.
