Over the rainbow

We are just back from a weeklong trip to Maui, Hubby's and my first-ever visit to that island. Although many aspects of the trip bear writing about, I will start with the most incredulous moment--seeing for myself, without any introduction, what has to be one of the most beautiful trees in the world.

Meet the Rainbow Eucalyptus tree!

At first, I thought someone had intervened, painted it with acrylic paint or rubbed it with colored chalk on a whim! But no, the colors occur naturally. If you google the term, you'll see a number of photographs, but this one is mine!
