    I took a trip to the Big Island of Hawaii last summer and top of my to do, was to visit Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden. I took my sister and my mother and we had a wonderful time. The garden is located just outside of Hilo and is worth every penny. Mahalo for sharing the image of Calathea burle-marxii
