It's starting to feel a lot like summer

So many of the blogs are featuring the most amazing flowers. The colors and shapes are so beautiful. I love the roses and pansy's especially. It seems very green here. I have seen some lovely orchids in stores preparing for mother's day. Our orange tree is producing the most fragrant blossoms.

A straggler pineapple is producing a fruit in my patio.

The others are quite large now. I never moved them back after the fence was done. I was afraid they would fall over as they are top heavy. (Well that's my excuse anyway, heh). I hope they get ripe soon.
Of note, the last pineapple canning company folded in Hawaii. A sign of the times. Too expensive to operate a plant here. Growers will be focusing on the fresh fruit industry.

My Knitter's Almanac came and I started the Ganomy Hat in worsted weight Malabrigo.

My sister and BIL are visiting and we did the Hoomaluhi Walk today. It was muggy and warm so we dropped by School Street to get a shaved ice. Then I dropped them off at Ala Moana Beach park while I went to retrieve my Visa card from Sam Choy's BLC restaurant. I was so happy it was found! For a moment thoughts of identity theft and large unknown charges showing up on bill flashed by. There was a Kaiwi channel race at Ala Moana Beach Park and I don't recall when the park has been busier. There were NO spaces, and no one leaving.

Yesterday I stopped by Bella Beads. I just became aware that Brad, co owner or the store recently died in an accident and stopped by give Karen a hug.

While I was there, I met Stacey of Simple Joys. She has been helping out in the store. It was nice to meet a fellow blogger. I'm hoping she'll post pictures of her creations soon.

Waah! It's Monday tomorrow. Back to the grind.

Wow, thank you for sharing those pineapple pictures! I don't think I'd ever seen then on the stalk before. Aren't they related the bromileads?

Love the pineapple photos! Neat!

Hot here, supposed to hit 89 today. Rarely stays hot more than two days so am hoping the fog rolls in tonight.

My indicator of summer? Saw an alligator lizard yesterday. --Syl

I'm so glad that you got your card back, this must have been such a scare! And my, thanks so much for sharing these most amazing pineapple pics - I can't seem to get enough of nature pics these days - and yours are particularly beautiful!

How wonderful to be able to pick your own fresh pineapples and oranges. I didn't know oranges had such beautiful blossoms.
