To Market, To Market - Part 2 (Flowers)



This is Part 2 of my trip to the Farmers' Market at KCC.  This time I am focusing on all of the stunning flowers at the market.  I don't even know if I can really do them justice, since by this time, my daughters were reaching the saturation point with all of my photo-taking so I had to hurry.  Also, I realize that the photo above is actually a rambutan, which is not a flower, but I just really liked the photo and how flower-like it is.  OK, on to the real thing.

  3. I love all the different proteas in Hawaii. We always try to go to a botanical garden. Never thought about checking out the flower market.

  5. SO beautiful! I think I stopped at that orchid stand and wished I could buy some for my mom. She is an amazing orchid grower and can get them re-blooming over and over. Whenever she gives me one I enjoy the bloom for a few months and then give it back to her to get it to bloom again.
    Your pictures are amazing! Brian got another trip to Honolulu! He heads back next week. No luck for me to come along though... :(

  7. I really love the KCC market. It's hard for me to get out there sometimes, with 2 kids and all, but I still love it. I think the cactus is amazing as well and those pictures of the flowers makes me want to get out there ASAP.
