I was playing some Hawaiian music on the patio with a friend this weekend.
Took this shot of my 1940 Epiphone lap-steel sitting on my peacock chair, also from the 40's!



This guy was sitting next to us, but didn't join in.

I’ve been busy grooming the plants that I intend to enter into L A international Fern Society’s annual fern and exotic plant show. The show is held at the L A County Arboretum ( Arcadia, California) The days this year are July 26-27.
Back in the day it seems that the tiki palaces used lotsa plastic “exotic” plants. I use one of my other collecting passions (live ferns and tropicals) in and around my tiki lounge and find it a good fit.
The following pix don’t necessarily reflect how I display/use my plant collection in my lounge, for example I placed the fern on top of the tiki’s head so that I could see any fronds that needed to be clipped. My wife liked the sorta humorous result and I decided to waste some of my unlimited film stash and post some pix.
Cheers

Tiki bought in a bar, Shelter Island, Ca W/“Rabbitsfoot" fern.


W/ “Leather” fern


Tree fern W/resin tiki from Tuesday Morning store in La Habra, Ca




Timber Bamboo planted in the spring of 2013. Already too big for the show-hopefully it’ll get as tall as what they use to have at Hi-Times liquor in Costa Mesa. Mugs shown for scale

At the Airport on the Big Island.



Looking through photos of our trip to Oahu and the Big Island for this guy, I am again amazed at the beauty of those places. Not tiki, but if you'll indulge me, here're a few in the spirit of Aloha. All from 2009.

Thanks. But, you really shouldn't encourage me...

While not expressly tiki, there is certainly a tie-in with the history of the Royal Hawaiian (of which I've included numerous photos), both on account of Trader Vic's association and its use as R&R for the Navy during WWII, who are largely responsible for bringing elements of the South Seas back to vitalize the Polynesian Pop/Tiki aesthetic/culture we all dig. I really think I've gone overboard, but hopefully not too obnoxiously so. Again, all from September, 2009:

























































And to bring it back for some OTC, from February, 2014 at the Polynesian at WDW:

Temps in the high 80’s. Sipping a 1944 Mai Tai. Rain coming down pretty good on my Jungle garden. Dats as close to “tropical “ as you can get in SoCal.
Cheers
