Heading back to Oahu for work. I will be able to take time off this Sunday and rent a car. Are there any plumeria farms/nurseries not to be missed, specifically on the North Shore? I would love to bring back a great souvenir and just one more plumeria. ONE. I promise!

Well, Jim Little Farms is on the North Shore but I don't think he sells out of his nursery anymore.

Jim Little is in Hale'iwa. They say he is a private but friendly man who doesn't like to be found. We will be in that area and I will hunt for him.

We ran out of time on Sunday with so much to see. We hiked the non-sanctioned Kokohead Trail above Hanauma Bay. The hot, steep climb nearly kicked my butt! But we finished.

We made it to the North Shore and Dole Plantation where I found a little booth off to the side selling fresh fruit and a few plumeria cuttings from Jim Little Nursery and Farm. There were affordable cuttings but I bought a slightly higher named cutting, Lei Rainbow. The lady at the booth sells for them part time and wished she could sell all his items. She showed me an awesome picture of a $300 plumeria. It was gorgeous! It has pink veins on the flower similar to an orchid. I wish I had gotten the name. She said people save up their money to buy one. I will be receiving emails with help on rooting and care of my new baby. I will ask her about it. Already she is sitting in Perlite on the hot cement of the driveway. Since plumeria grow well in Houston, she was confident in giving me a "double". I think that means the cutting has a "Y" shape to it?
