This plant has silly orange fruit; when I saw it I thought they looked like little octopi because of all the little nodes sprouting off of them! So weirdo scientist must have thought they looked different though, this plant was marked as a "nipple fruit!"
A beautiful crown flower plant in the purple and white variety, very popular for lei here in Hawai`i...
And the best part of crown flowers... caterpillars! I loved taking them home and growing; we'd always take them right back to the crown flower plants once they had become butterflies!
A gold-dust gecko hidden among the greenery; these little guys are not native to Hawai`i but sooo cute! There are a lot more of them on the Big Island, they are rarer on O`ahu.
And a pretty flower that looks almost like a sea anemone from the cannonball tree; the trunk of the tree itself is covered with cannonball sized gourds! This flower is actually dying; the live ones are much lighter with peach and purple tones.
