While Mr. Man did the historic thing – the U.S.S. Missouri and the Arizona Memorial – I visited the Foster Botanical Garden in Honolulu just a short distance away.
They have birds of paradise there too …
And real red birds – this guy posed and posed for me – he was lovin’ the camera!
This is the female he was flirting with …
This is an odd flower, don’t you think?
Lots and lots of orchids – they’re truly popular there.
And this creepy plant – we saw lots of these in yards.
This is their corpse plant. Thank goodness it hadn’t flowered yet, but when I arrived and paid my fee the woman who took my money said it was supposed to have bloomed already. She sounded disappointed. I wasn’t. It was enough to see it safely locking it’s stench inside.
