I have a thing for tropical flowers and Mike likes nature everything, so we visited the Foster Botanical Garden while we were in Honolulu. It was pretty much empty when we went, so we had all the flowers and plants to ourselves. Apparently it’s the oldest garden in Honolulu. I recommend visiting because wacky plants are fun and it’s only $5.

Like most things in Honolulu, it’s got a bit of an Asian theme going on.

A coffee plant. The seeds of the berries are roasted and used to make coffee!

At some point, I gave up trying to remember what things were called and just took photos of pretty flowers.
