Many plumeria trees on Maui look like this now:
The leaves fell off a while ago. The branches have been bare. But there are flowers starting to open. It’s like spring is happening! I have been curious if there were cycles of seasons here. Here is at least one signal.
I know that it will also soon be time to travel upcountry to see the jacaranda trees. They will be smothered with purple flowers and look like something from a Dr. Seuss book. I’ll definitely have to remember to check them out.
