Artist's Description

Occasionally these blossoms are yellow or orange, but the most common color is red. There is a legend associated with the 'ohi'a tree and it's blossoms that goes like this: One day Pele, the goddess of the volcano, met a handsome young man named 'ohi'a.

About James Temple

James Temple

I've lived in Hawaii since 2002, 1200 feet above sea level, on the small rural island of Moloka'i. It is very quiet here, with only about 7,400 residents.
