Ho'omaluhia Botanical Gardens

In the middle of a bustling town on the windward side of Oahu, there is a tropical oasis escape. Ho'omaluhia Botanical Gardens, which I completely found on accident looking for somewhere to stop and Nurse Taj, is a secret garden paradise!

There is a beautiful big pond where you can feed ducks and TONS of fish,  go fishing (at certain specified times) and relax on the sprawling green lawn that meets the pong water. There are trails that take you under the canopy of trees that invite the idea that you juuuust might have stepped onto the Avatar movie set. Leaves that are delicate pieces of art and can either fit in your hand, or cover your whole body! It is free most days to go inside and the information center has a lovely display that explains Hawaiian crafts from the plants that are on the grounds. We just visited for a few hours but you can also camp there or host a gathering..hmmmm my hostess mind just took a trip back there!

My little fairies were in bliss there!
