Continuing dry

But the temps are right on normal for this time of year. It has been sunny in the mornings and, for the most part, just occasionally cloudy as blobs of high altitude clouds are breaking off from a stalled front just northwest of Kaua'i.

The winds have turn southeast and are bringing us warmer temps and higher humidities for a few days. I'm always glad for warmer than normal days! I'm a heat freak! The warmer it is, the more energy I get. I'm at my best when the temps are between the upper 70s and the lower 90s!

The banana plant is the same way. It will slow down very noticeably if the temps get below 70 and likewise if it approaches 100.

There are a few varieties that will withstand sub freezing temps like the Basjoo that is a Japanese variety. They produce fruit but the fruit is seeded so it is used as an ornamental and is very tall and attractive plant.

You're just like my Cape Honeysuckle! A true tropical. I didn't realize until a year or two ago that many tropical plants don't like too much heat. When it gets above 90-95, the Cape Honeysuckle just says, "I don't think so", and stops blooming. If it drops back down to 75-80, it's covered with blossoms again.

I'd have to go with 70-upper 80s. So often, when we get above 90, our humidity's in the 90% or higher range, too, and that's not very comfortable!
