Gardens of Kaua'i

We recently visited some impressive gardens on Kaua’i, including the Limahuli and Allterton portions of the National Tropical Botanical Gardens, as well as the grounds of Kaua’i’s Hindu Monastery. The National Tropical Botanical Gardens are located on Kaua’i, Maui, and in Biscayne Bay, Florida and include everything from formal estate gardens to 1000 year old lava rock planting terraces filled with taro. The Hindu Monastery is a quirky, gorgeously sited retreat, where they are painstakingly building an elaborately carved stone temple by hand. Now I wish I had a little Ganesh with a parasol in my garden too.
