I have been meaning to post this for a long time but when my computer went belly up several months back it was put on hold. In March I visited an amazing place on Oahu if you enjoy gardens and flowers called Foster Garden. I always wanted to take my family there as I remember going on field trips there as a kid and it probably started my love of flowers. Right now Oahu is having major conflicts with locals and tourists since the reopening caused the island to be flooded with tourists. Usually, that would be a welcome thing but the tourists coming have been much less respectful of local culture and invaded private areas like they own them. The great thing about this spot is very few tourists find it and usually it is not too crowded so you can find your zen place and peace in the city. I am not a plant expert so can’t identify most of these but I wanted to give you my view of the beauty of this place. The sights and smells of this magical place are well worth checking out if you ever visit Honolulu.
One of the most unique plants of the whole garden is the Cannonball Tree, it grows coconut looking cannonballs that get up to 12″ in size.
Mahalo for making it all the way to the end of my garden tour. I have a few garden tours coming up if this goes over well. Enjoy your weekend and get out there and enjoy the beauty this planet has to offer while you still can.
