Lyon in Winter

In the holiday spirit, here's a lovely poinsettia for you -- actually, it's a relative, a double chaconia, Warszewiczia coccinea. Read about this botanical gem, and the other amazing things flourishing at the Lyon Arboretum in Manoa Valley, O'ahu, in my article in the December '08/January '09 issue of Hana Hou! magazine (in-flight publication for Hawaiian Air). If you don't plan on flying in the next two months, you can read it online -- click here.

Great new article in HanaHou!
Thanks for writing it. I would love to see the place someday in person.

Thanks, Royce! I took some family visiting from the continent there last week and they enjoyed it very much. The Arboretum has reopened its gift shop and was selling books, t-shirts, and their popular homemade jams and jellies made by the volunteers. I couldn't resists picking up some Jaboticaba jelly -- yum!
