Dear Pohonkelapa  :)

Very nice looking photos,and it seems you have handled

the equipment fairly well for first time.

And the picture of Lipstick palms was superb and what caught

my attention was the palm in post no.2, picture 2. it looks like

a cycas or fern tree_what species is that ?

very nice and different in appearence that palm.

Love,

Kris.

love conquers all..

Wow, If I was connected to a red head like that I wouldn't be wandering around in botanical gardens. :D

But if I must say so, nice pictures of the plants.  Foster's is one of my favorite spots.  To bad they charge to go in.  Keeps me away and driving over to Ho`omaluhia where the parking is GREAT and there is no charge to enter.

i found both gardens were worth the visit.after flying all the way from san diego,another 5 bucks to get into fosters was definitely worth it.
