For those of you who remember Pikake Gardens, on May 13th of this year I was allowed into Pikake for the first time in many years. I took hundreds of pictures and uploaded them into a Flash slide show on my Eco Designs and Landscapes web site. For those of you who have been to Pikake, you may want to go and take a look, perhaps to remember the Garden as it was.
For starters, I loaded all of the photos. Some areas such as the Protea Gardens and the Arid Garden have grown beyond expectation and are more glorious than ever. The Pan Asian Garden has been very well maintained and the water in the two large ponds is crystal clear so that the Koi are shown off very well.
The Rose Garden is Incredible! Almost overwhelming!
The Jungle Garden on the other hand looks under watered. The plants are stressed and the ponds are no longer circulated. The bottom or large pond was down one foot in elevation.
The slide show can be found HERE. If you are using a 64 bit operating system, you need to open the slide show in a 32 bit version of Internet Explorer to watch it.
