Melissa visited Princeville Botanical Gardens in August and was kind enough to share some of her beautiful photos. She lives in Riverside, California and this was her first time ever to Hawaii! We are very honored that she chose to spend some of her precious vacation time in our gardens. Melissa says photography is a hobby she enjoys for its artistic form of expression and that close up botanicals are her favorite subject. It can be easy to lose sight of a specimen in some of our natural settings, but Melissa captures the essence of these plants very well.
Many of these flowers and fruits are still on display if you come on a tour soon. If you've taken photos of our garden that you would like to share, please let us know. There's nothing better than seeing our gardens through the eyes of our visitors.
