While strolling through Moanalua Botanical Gardens there were a lot of red ginger flowers in bloom. I wandered around looking for the most photogenic of the flowers and here is what I came up with. I love the red and green contrast.

At Moanalua Gardens sits this nice taro pond. Complete with taro plants, koi and ducks.  Taro is a native Hawaiian cuisine staple and today you can se it in poi, taro chips, taro bread and even one of my favorite taro malasadas.
