I am off island for a while and my postings will be limted. However, I did recently go to the Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden in Florida. At he information desk I told them I was from Hawaii. They thought I might not see much that is different from where I live. Well, to me that does not matter. I enjoy garden design as much as the plants themselves and this garden is a great example of a well designed garden and landscape. The mature trees along with the colorful plantings and well maintained grounds makes this garden a must see! And although this was not a great "blooming" time of the year and it was an overcast day, I am glad we did not miss this attraction!
I moved to Hawaii from Tempe, Arizona with my life partner Scott in the summer of 2007. We both took early retirement from "Corporate America" to build a house on the sea cliffs of Hawaiian Paradise Park, in Kea'au, Hawaii.
Living oceanfront in the Puna District of the Big Island offers gardening challenges. Follow me as I take the journey!
