Pua Mau Botanic and Sculpture Garden

We did not plan to go here when we went to the Big Island but we saw a sign at the street with arrows to a botanical garden. This was after we went to Pu'ukohola Heiau Historical site. It was beautiful with a lot of flowers but we were not allowed to explore everything so we got a discounted entrance fee. A lot of their trees and plants are common here in Hawaii but I think they look nicer because they were altogether.

Their gallery/ gift shop.

RC did not want to leave these small flowers. Kids can be amazed at things we ignore.

There were bug and other animal sculptures.

The plumeria trees encircling this area. Pua Mau Place seems to make circular areas with trees or stones as their "fence".

Before going to see the one turtle that's in the garden.

RC after feeding the peacocks. I haven't seen so many peacoks in one area.

RC smelling flowers. I love the smell of plumeria too.

Is this the Hawaiian version of the Stone Henge? They copied it using big rocks.

It would have been a lot  better if we went in the afternoon when the sun is not too intense.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
