Beneath the towering heights of the Pali a beautiful botanic park lies….plants, animals and birds…on the windward side of Oahu….
Its name means to “make a place of peace and tranquility….
Heliconias….above and below
Taro growing on the edge of a lake.
A beautiful fragrance….??
Red seal bamboo…
The view driving in….
Its still what we call winter down here…that roughly translates as lots of intermittent rain, skies full of clouds , gusty winds and in between beautiful sunny days that we would describe as coolish! In between showers this afternoon I went for a walk across the road from where I live …im lucky enough to have a piece of remnant scrub which never ceases to amaze and bring smiles to my face.
Its limestone country and so there are beautiful ponds scattered around…after rain.
There were clusters of donkey orchids dotted around
Local hakeas and beautiful yellow hibertia.
And there was more!
Biodiversity rules…..so lucky to have this as my backyard.
