Trees, Flowers, Ferns

The popularity of blog posts showing the flowers, ferns and trees of Okinawa, Japan has convinced me that I need to start up a page where visitors can easily find them.

Rather than an alphabetical listing, the plants will be listed chronologically by month and dates the photos were taken.  This should give the viewer an idea what may be blooming if they decide to visit the beautiful Ryukyu Islands of Okinawa, Japan.
