Today Pam Fraser of Ladysmith, Vancouver Island, Canada, is taking us on a little tropical vacation.

A few days ago you asked readers to send some tropical pictures for us to enjoy on these wintry mornings. These are some from a November 2017 trip to Maui, Hawaii. They were taken at the Garden of Eden, a large garden attraction on the road to Hana and well worth the stop. This garden has plants from many tropical areas of the world.

Happy spring dreaming to my fellow gardeners!
