Hawaii was so lush and green and filled with tropical delights and exquisite flowers, I just had to do a garden post about it.
Mark Twain remembered Hawaiian flowers for decades after his visit. In 1889 he wrote; "Other things leave me but it abides...in my nostrils still lives the breath of flowers that perished twenty years ago."
I hope you enjoy the pictures...
