Beautiful Orchid Flowers!


Beautiful orchid flowers.

This beautiful orchid was given to me as a gift for one of the opening of the Hawaii State Legislative sessions when I served in the Hawaii State House of Representatives from 2002 to 2010. It’s the last of the many flowers and plants gifted to me back then. My dad has been caring for it since I live in a townhouse on the second floor. It’s vibrant and thriving! 

Huge Sweet Potatoe From My Dad’s Garden!


My dad and I replanted a citrus tree and picked sweet potatoes from the same pot of the tree from my dad’s garden. This is the big one rinsed off.
