    A beautiful book, very informative

    This beautifully photographed volume illustrates some fantastic and<BR/>otherwise, unknown, public gardens in Hawaii. I am most familiar with the<BR/>island of Oahu, and Tropical Gardens of Hawaii points me in the right direction for my next trip to that island. Meanwhile, I can enjoy those<BR/>gardens vicariously, stuck in the snows of Oregon. Highly recommended for<BR/>any enthusiast of Hawaiian botany.
