A day spent on one end of Poipu, Kauai included a visit to their Botanical Gardens. Ironic thoughts came to mind on why there would be a garden such as this when the whole island seems to be one big botanical garden. Ah well, thoughts best left for another day.
Come into my garden said the spider to the fly. And in I flew without a worry.
How they got the creatures to show up for the tourist’s photo ops was amazing. This little one scuttled front and center and froze to pose. He may have winked at me, I’m not sure.
There are hibiscus all over the island, but I must admit that the ones within these gardens were especially beautiful.
The gardens aren’t too large, but just enough to get lost within their beauty…and make your friends wonder where you are.
Little sun dappled areas along the sides of paths led me off the beaten track.
This was a concise slice of the island.
The visit to the gardens was a perfect stop right across the road from the ocean.
