In The Wood



This is one of the many Banyan trees in down town Hilo along Banyan Drive- Big Island

Click for a little info on the- Banyan tree
I believe these trees can drop the temperature at least ten degrees underneath..



Some of the action across the street over at (Reed's Bay)
My dog frolicking with the ducks

.......GORGEOUS - IMPOSING; this magnificient tree.....it's large and heavy leaved branches are beautiful: it must be very fresh under it...actually a most decorativ "sunshade" for the garden....!!!!

....your beautiful doggy loves water...and his interest for the couple of ducks is too sympatic....wouldn't he swim over....?

Splendid nature in Hawaii; MERAVIGLIOSO!!

That is an amazing tree. Love the lush green color too, very soothing to the eyes. Looks like your dog had some fun with the ducks.

Have a nice day Regina.

All beautiful - my favorite is the last one with your dog watching the ducks. I see those wings flapping and can almost hear their sassy quack-quacks at the dog! :) That tree is incredible! -Tammy

Amazing tree! When I travelled in the Amazon I saw a 'cousin' of this one and it was HUGE! I could not realize its true size because of all the vegetation mess around it but even so I could not belive my eyes!
Glad you've joined CDP! :-)

Kilauea Poetry said...

Thanks to all of you..I've been a little slow responding here but will make sure to visit everyone-
JM..these do get to be monsters. We have one in our front yard and it will begin to choke out other trees so they need a bit of pruning. (btw)..I didn't look carefully enough as they (CDP) wanted a daily..limiting it to one..ha-
but there must of been some confusion as over me putting my small town and not the city? Anyway..I probably wouldn't be able to keep up (maybe country) lol-

Hi Regina,
To write you more on my last post about my work, I'm looking for your email -but I can't find it. Please send it to jeannette(dot)Coevorden1(at)yahoo(dot)com
Thank you! There are some things I like to tell you, that you might want to know:)

Oz Girl said...

It would be my guess that the ducks did NOT want to frolic with your dog, LOL. That banyan tree looks very dense, so I could see how the temperature could actually be lower underneath it! Love the shot of the lil lizard... I had one who befriended me when we stayed at Captain Cook's Bay in a house. He was either in my bathroom all week or somewhere near the sliding doors by the balcony!

Kilauea Poetry said...

Thank you Elvira for your lovely words!Friko..I'll send you a note shortly- thanks. Jeannette..I will as well. Thank you for your earlier comments to the (Stamen's post)! Oz Girl..Capt. Cook..was where I lived briefly after arriving here on the Islands! Funny, I know what you mean..some of my earliest memeories are of those lizards! Thanks for your visit!

Let's be perfectly clear- the war on free speech is spiritual!
