    Hawaii is unique in its horticultural blend of plants and landscapes. Although we live in the tropics, gardening is heavily influenced by the ways of Europe and the Americas. This plus Asian, Polynesian and African agricultural influences have made landscaping and gardening fun, but a bit complicated.

    When choosing plants for a garden, you may base your decision on a variety of factors. We sometimes decide to choose plants based on a color palette we like. This is easy to do if you want a garden of greenery. The choices abound. Many lovely tropical plants do not produce colorful flowers but have beautiful leaves in all shapes, sizes and shades of green. If you want brighter colors, you may choose among the numerous species that flower in red, orange and yellow. For dark contrast, you may select some of the purple flowering varieties.

    When I was growing up, we ate dinner at the family table almost daily. Sunday dinner, however, was usually homemade soup and sandwiches on tray tables in front of the television. And now, when the rains lash down and skies turn gray, a bowl of soup feels just right for lunch or dinner. I was happy to learn Sunday is National Chicken Soup Day, since my hankering for Sunday soup suppers always seems to kick in right when chilly weather arrives.
