TODAY'S FLOWERS

Our universal love of flowers brings us all together every Sunday, thanks to Luiz Santilli Jr. who created TODAY’S FLOWER’S. It is managed by Luiz, Laerte Pupo, Valkyrien and me. You can find great flowers and also share your own by clicking here.

This is a continuation of our visit to the Ho'omaluhia Botanical Gardens which I posted in a previous Today's Flowers. I hope one day I will again visit Oahu because a visit there would no longer be complete without experiencing this one of many, many and oh so stunningly beautiful places in Hawaii.

  14. Considering that Oahu is NOT a big island, I have never been to that garden. I guess cause it's on the other side of the island. Well, now that I've seen your photos I will definitely make a trip out there after my foot heals.

  15. I've been to Oahu twice but it was way before my love of photography took over. I'd love to go back and capture some of these beauties myself someday.
    I do remember the large tropical leaves in the rainforest.
    Lovely images!
    I love that statue too.

    My flower post is here: Carletta’s Captures.
