Hawaii - Part 2 - The Kula Botanical Garden

This was our 2nd time visiting this garden. The first time was 37 years ago!

At that time the garden was in its infancy - everything was small, newly planted....

 and we were very young!

The garden is now an explosion of vegetation with huge trees and flowering plants.  Here are just a few of the pictures I took. They will definitely inspire some new projects for the winter ahead, both the shapes and the colour combinations.

I love large leaves

A great colour combination

I took this photo to show the different stages of life - young through old.

Monstera - my favourite!
