2017-11-04 Arbor Day - nhps
Materials we had this year were uluhe, kupukupu and pala'a ferns, a'ali'i foliage, 'akia foliage, flowers, and fruit, alahe'e fruit ( a bit heavy), naio, moa, 'ulei, and red ti leaves for color. A number of flowers magically appeared, and were soon used: ilima, sandalwood, kokio ula ula,  kokio keokeo, and hau hele wai. The latter have bristly receptacles, so aren't really suited for lei making.
