as some of you may recall, my gf and I bought a house on the Big Island back in 2005. We returned from a ten day trip on Monday. Here's a pic of the back yard. These are pineapple plants that I have planted in this old wash tub. All of these plants are propogated from pineapples we bought at various farmers markets. And some new ones just getting started. This is an avocado tree with a bunch of orchids hanging in it. A few are attached to branches as well I'll start another thread with a a couple of shots of the few orchids that were blooming.
