These are the flowers from the Kukui Tree. They grow in clusters and turn into green fleshy balls about the size of golf balls. Inside each is a kukui nut. Kukui nuts are cleaned, ground and made into leis. The nut meat is roasted, chopped and added to the raw fish dish called Poke.
These little butterflies flit about in groups. The tops of their wings are a bright, light blue. When they rest they fold their wings up so the gray is showing. When flying around a bush they look like little blue fairy lights winking on and off.
Agapanthus or Blue Lily in a neighbor’s yard. They wonder what I’m doing - creeping along with my camera, shooting the flowers on the curb. Luckily the pit bull mix sent out to investigate was friendly.
