From almost 10am sharp until 5pm there was a perfectly spaced flow of visitors. There was a chance for them to say hello to people they already knew, to meet new faces and to experience the wild cultivated gardens pretty much on their own.
It was a surprise and a pleasure for me to meet a few of my more anonymous local blog readers
It was a beautifully cool morning with a hint of breeze. The hot held off until three. One brief shower slowed the last guest's venture into the gardens.
The view from above at the start grabbed their attention and lured them in.
I made sure they were hydrated and made most of them eat haupia. Refreshing was the general response.
While I spent my time visiting and orienting people to the layout of the gardens from the cozy cabin, I had a map, word came back from several folks that Bulbarella was out in her garden giving private tours. I saved her some haupia.
It was a perfect day.
