Well friends, we’re now well into our 2nd week in Maui. Wow… really?! We shouldn’t have blinked!
The first week was all about finding our way and climatizing. And after the 2nd week, it feels like home sweet home.
I have to admit, we haven’t done many ‘epic’ things, other than beaches, pool, local eateries and just enjoying. I took one trip into Home Depot for some supplies to make something, (fun!), but other than that, we’ve been totally unwinding.
In among all that time, I also got sick. Is it legal to get sick in Hawaii?! Crazy! Just cold symptoms, but really hung close to home for a good week. I’m chalking it up to maybe a stress unwind (which is typical for me), but could be the change in weather pattern too. Maui has been experiencing all time record highs for temps and humidity right about when we arrived. What are the chances?! 🙂
Regardless, it’s hard to be long term uncomfortable when you have a pool, beaches, air conditioning and trade winds on your side. I really actually love the humidity, because it’s so different from our own climate.
So anyway… we were shopping for souvineers at a neat mall the other day, when I took a stroll down a side road, drawn to the lush tropical trees and growth. And that’s when I noted I was standing in front of a tropical nursery. Woa….
I noted their open hours, then returned today to get in a photo shoot to share with the garden lovers out there.
Welcome to South Maui Gardens, located in Kihei, Maui! Thanks guys, for permission to showcase your beautiful place!
Need a palm tree or 8? This is the place.
A little different from a typica west coast look, I will tell you that!
Since so many of you wanted me to do more gardening posts back at home, I felt you may really enjoy this tour, because it’s just soooo different!
Please note, I didn’t write down any plant names. The place was closing in 15 minutes, so I basically ran through the place, snapping and giggling at how beautiful it all was.
Let’s go for a walk!
I thought the root systems were so interesting.
I look at these pictures and ask myself… “You were there?!”
Slow down time… slow down…
So here’s something interesting. I came across this pile of gravel of sorts. Upon closer inspection…
You can even order it for driveways and such. Neat, huh?
And that fabulous stone bench isn’t too shabby either. Wow.
And bring some of this tropical climate home with it of course!
