The Hawaiian word of the day is "uluhaimalama." 

During Queen Liliuokalani's imprisonement at Iolani palace, she was forbidden from receiving any news. But daily, flowers were brought to her from her garden uluhaimalama, and they were wrapped in newspapers, which kept the queen informed of the happenings in her kingdom.
