H is For Hands, Honu & Hibiscus

How any of you expected to see at least two of the three things listed in the title?

This bright red hibiscus is popular all over the island.

The day we went to Sea Life Park all the kids got to touch Gizmo,
the baby green sea turtle. Gizmo is nine months old.
Soon he will be placed in the huge aquarium that simulates life in the ocean.
At 24 months old, after he’s gained some size and some foraging experience,
he will be released into the wild.
Since green sea turtles are on the Endangered Species List,
Gizmo will remain at Sea Life Park until he’s out grown most of his predators.

Hibiscus come in many colors.
Each different color or petal shape is the result of a different cultivar.
The Hawaii State Flower is a yellow Hibiscus with slightly ruffled petal edges.
The flower’s native name is, pua aloalo.

UPDATE: My love has been away for a week and he is coming home tonight. In a few minutes I leave for work. After that I am off to the airport. Today I am going to be very tardy at visiting your posts if I get there at all. Please use the ABC links in my sidebar to visit your friends. I’ll update as soon as I have free time. Thanks!

Oh man, I forgot Mr. Linky again. I’m sorry.
