Scenic Sunday: KCC Cactus Garden

The Kapiolani Community College Cactus Garden (Diamond Head Road, Honolulu)  was founded by Mr. Moriso Teraoka in 1988.  Mr. Teraoka, who enjoys collecting plants, donated the Cactus Garden plants, which he ordered from various catalogs.  He then volunteered his time to design and care for the garden for the first couple of years.  Eventually, Mr. Teraoka, who is well into his 70's, decided to return to school.  Today, he maintains the collection.

Cactus gardens have a charm of their own. I find it a peaceful place.

That's a wonderful cactus garden. They are so tall almost as tall as houses. It must be very hard to take care of them. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.
