Hummm tastey lunch time treats !

Christopher,
Your tropical island photography is beautiful.
Have you thought of putting together a bound photo album book of your best shots ?

I just received a hard bound book that I made on my computer that Apple/ Mac printed, bound and published for me.

It was really quite easy to do, though not that cheap.
It cost me a little over $ 100 dollars for an 8x 10 hard bound book ( linen covered ) with 94 pages of images and text.

It is a nice way to save memories.

Thanks Michelle.

I have thought that some of these images may come in handy one day on cards, T-shirts and other such rot for Tropical starved mainland tourists who are driving by my mountain nursery, single luxury camping vaction spot and roadside possum stand and that I should put this collection on CD to be sure it is safe.

My lightbulbs have been popping one after another lately. The TV died last night. It's an omen.

Christopher;

You are going to miss your island. I haven't been reading your blog long; why are you moving? Forgive if this is a boring or repetitive question.

Land Anonymous Scarlet, I am moving to have land with more Elbow Room that I will own, not rent.

Yes I will miss the tropics and Hawaii for a bit I am sure. I am moving to the beautiful Smoky Mountains though. The mana or spirit of the earth is not confined to a speck of rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The earth's beauty and nature's abundance surrounds us always. We only need to be able to see it.

The Maui I loved is fast turning into a mini LA. It is time for me to move on.

Nice to see another tropical gardener, with blooms at this time of the year similar to mine.I just came back from Antigua where I intend to blog on my friend's garden,including her flowering aloes (orange and yellow).

Ah, thanks for the edification on your move. You will love the Smokies; just avoid Gatlinburg, the mini-LA of that area!

I was only in Maui once, about 27 years ago. It must be much different now.
