Wahiawa Botanic Garden, Wahiawa, Hawaii

I love Botanic gardens just for the shear depth of their collections, if not their inherent beauty.

To see so many specimen plants gathered in one area can be a bit overwhelming, though, I wished the signage here was a bit better, as many of the plants I was interested in were unmarked, Still, this was my first exposure to a rainforest environment with hanging vines, loads of epiphtyes, huge ferns and the like,

Despite its small size, the Wahiawa Botanic Garden was a nice stop for the day. After we had wandered around, my son and I spent over an hour producing some watercolor paintings of the scenes and taking a few photographs to bring home with us.
