The Gold Shower trees of the Hawaiian islands are in full bloom this summer. The Rainbow Shower trees are equally beautiful with their bursts of pink shades along the avenues and in the yards.
Since we travel by bus most of the time, we have talked to many Hawaiians about the islands. One of the most interesting things we have heard is that the islands are in full bloom this year unlike previous other years. In fact, we were told Hawaiians were getting worried about the flowers! The trees were not at their best in years until now.
This year came with great surprise to see the trees come back into full bloom adding much decorative beauty to the islands. Hawaii is known as the flower islands for a good reason!
These beautiful orchids were photographed in Waikiki Beach were it is a popular place to have a wedding and wedding receptions. The pink wall in the background sets off the flowers in a soft appearance.

Very colorful floral decorative art created using my original rose photograph and processed in Photoshop. These colors are already within the rose petals. I didn’t add any color, but I brought out the colors that are already there but not seen, by manipulating the light. It gives a very happy and cheerful effect.
