Jacaranda Tree of Waikiki

A   L   O   H   A !

“ Go often
 to the house of
 thy friend, 
for weeds choke 
the unused path. ” 

 Ralph Waldo Emerson








" He sees 
the blossoming flower
 in the tiny seed, 
the silver lining 
to every cloud, 
and a beautiful tomorrow
 in the darkest today. "

Edwin Osgood Grover, 
The Book Of Good Cheer, 1913







" Look to be treated
 by others
as you have 
treated others. "

Publius Syrus









“ Be kind; 
everyone you meet 
is fighting a hard battle.” 

 Plato










" Success in life,
 in anything,
depends upon
 the number of persons
that one can 
make ones'self 
agreeable to. "

Thomas Carlyle






Thank YOU
for lingering
beneath the Jacaranda

A trouble shared is a
trouble halved
it works for me.

Beautiful tree! I think the wisdom of the Plato quote is one we all let lapse from time to to time. Reminders are important.

The Rain, the Sun, and not sure of the time of rain and sun all makes me a little dizzy in KL. I hope it is not like that in Hawaii.

Thank you for reminding me of the name of this tree. I've seen it blooming and keep forgetting its name. It's so beautiful. I just love these photos.
