Always a very special flower! I love the legend associated with it. Featured in Hawaiiana. Aloha nui!!

Mahalo Jane, and for the feature in the Hawaiiana group!

This brings back great memories, James! We all knew that picking these flowers would bring rain and so we never touched them during Kona storm season! Beautiful capture and perfect "talk story" description! l/f :-))

Poor color which obviates the message of the drawing, only in orange and no rose. Flimsy paper.

Artist's Description

In Hawaii there is a common tree in the forest called the 'ohi'a tree, that is important in Hawaiian culture. It bears beautiful flowers called Lehua blossoms. Occasionally these blossoms are yellow or orange, but the most common color is red. There is a legend associated with the 'ohi'a tree and it's blossoms that goes like this: One day Pele, the goddess of the volcano, met a handsome young man named 'ohi'a.

About James Temple

I have lived in Hawaii for the past 16 years, 1200 feet above sea level, on the small rural island of Moloka'i.
