Can anyone help me identify this one? I have researched a lot and still cannot find it exactly. The separations in the yellow sections make it different from the closest I can find. This is one of my favorites too and it needs a name!

There are good points and not so good points to living here. Some of the not so good points are the lack of work, high prices, and the weather. Some of the good points for living here are the plants, great views, and the weather!

Aloha, Dave
