Crazy for Gardens in Hawaii

Oh, I love gardens. Our visit in the first week of December to the Big Island did not disappoint. There was plenty of blooming lusciousness.

The first stop was Hawaii Tropical Bioreserve and Garden. This park is about 7 miles north of Hilo.

The day we visited this garden there was a warm misty rain. It was the perfect setting, and felt just like a tropical rain forest.
