lindasherman Saw them making the topping for a sushi bowl with ahi and #avocado and got inspired to buy a 1/2 pound of their fresh wild #ahi #tuna (definitely suitable for #sashimi) instead and make a #salad with similar ingredients but without the white rice. Delish! #healthyeating #healthy #kauai #hawaii #foodporn #arugula 2w

lindasherman The #AnaraSpa @GrandHyattKauai serves up a very nice #salad that features both prawns and a tasty piece of locally caught fish. #Pesto adds a nice touch. Enjoyed by the spa pool for @sabra1950's #Birthday month. #seafood #healthyeating #healthy #spa #kauai #hawaii #foodporn #fooddesign #FoodExperience 2w

lindasherman Rainbow Shower Trees showering their petals. #kauai #showertree #nature #skyporn #natureporn #clouds #tree #iWatermark 3w
  •   lindasherman The trees should show more vibrantly but I was focusing on the petals in the street. This is a follow-up post to a question about What is a Shower Tree? 3w

  •   goodyawards Love this! Never heard of shower trees? 3w
  •   morikawa_seiei I do not know too...very beautiful @lindasherman (*^-^*) 3w
  •   lindasherman @goodyawards @morikawa_seiei thank you!: This is a "rainbow" shower tree. Here is the explanation: blossoms — is a "made in Hawai'i" hybrid. It's also the official street tree of Honolulu, so designated in 1965 by then-Mayor Neal Blaisdell. The two parent species of shower trees were brought to Hawai'i from far away: The golden shower, Cassia fistula, hails from India. The pink-and-white shower, Cassia javanica, was imported from the Indonesian islands of Java and Sumatra. Being a hybrid, the rainbow shower usually doesn't set seed and must be professionally propagated by air-layering. A sure sign of summer in Hawai'i is the blooming of the rainbow shower, which can be found on all inhabited islands. It is a less-thirsty tree, is very tough and adaptable, and has a long blooming season from March to November, most prevalent in the summer. 3w
  •   lindasherman That first sentence should start: the Rainbow Shower Tree, recognizable by it's bounty of multi-colored blossoms... This is taken from an article by Heidi Bornhorst in the Honolulu Advertiser. I have added a second Shower Tree post to show the petals on the ground, having "showered". I tried catching petals falling but my iPhone 6 couldn't quite catch that. I did catch a bird though. 3w
  •   goodyawards @goodyawards Thank you this description! Looks like fall in Hawaii. 3w

  •   blt2drive Wow...I really like that!!! I love having the outdoors inside. 1mon
  •   bertaart Wow! That is so inviting - I need a vacation! 1mon
  •   lindasherman Good way of putting it Todd @blt2drive. A great deal of that on Kauai, including my house. Few people install a/c here because our trade winds keep us at a pleasant temperature most of the time." 1mon
  •   lindasherman Might be nice to have somewhere you can paint while on vacation. I think I know just the place @bertaart. You can always hang out at the Hyatt even if you don't stay there. They have a lovely spa with excellent exercise classes including yoga. 1mon
  •   bertaart Wow! Sounds exciting! Will put it on my wish list @lindasherman 1mon
  •   rayjgordon Well @bertaart - you should put a visit to Kauai on your "must do soon@ list ;) 1mon
