When we we got a break in the rains last week I took this shot of our Mickey mouse plant. A noxious shrub that has a beautiful flower and small fruit that resembles Mickey Mouse. The shrub is noxious because birds drop the seeds all over and the plants areeasy to grow.



This is what the fruit looks like. From a certain angle it does have a passing resemblance to Mickey Mouse

Now, that's an unusual plant. I've never seen anything like that. However, even though I've been on two Hawaiian cruises in the past few years, I know I haven't see all the plant life that Hawaii has to offer.

Great shots. Rose has asked that we limit ouselves to one photo per post so that people with dialup get a chance to see all the great photos.

Very interesting flowers!! Beautiful colours and odd shapes!

Cal, thanks for the reminder. This challenge has been so incredible that I came into town on my day off to book time on the library computer so I view all of them. It was killing me at home!



I must say, it was well worth the drive!!
