Three sisters

All over the Hawaiian Islands, there are parks that are surrounded by masonry rock walls. These stone fences are made of the volcanic rock found locally. The large stones at the base of these palm trees are volcanic and are scattered through out the Hawaiian landscape. I was struck by the majesty of these three palms and began to wonder about their origin. Some time long ago, these three beauties were little seedlings amongst the rocks. Were they purposely placed here by human ancestors? Or did the hand of God place them in such a way?
