Laurel Statz from Cross Plains, Wisconsin shares her breathtaking orchid photos from Hawaii

"I would like to submit my orchid pictures from McBryde National Botanical Garden at Poipu on the southern side of the island.

This was our first trip to Hawaii and really we only scratched the surface of what there is to do and see on the Island of Kauai. There is a widely varied selection of climates and landscapes on the island and there are officially 7 other islands!  We hope to get back there soon. The man in the last picture is my sweet hubby! But look at how this orchid roots entwine the tree trunk!"
