Thank you all the far flung friends of Lili`uokalani Gardens. Yes, Hurricane Iselle came to the gardens, but lightly compared to the more eastern and southerly regions of the island.
No major trees went down. No big limbs fell.
Storm surge did combine with high tides, resulting in extremely high water in the ponds. The concrete zig-zag walkway to the red bridge was completely covered.
Friends of Lili`uokalani Gardens planned last month to hold our regular monthly clean up day on Saturday, August 16. That is still on. There is storm tossed debris to rake up, weeds to be pulled, bushes to be trimmed, seaweed to be mucked out, and gravel to spread on a path by the tea house.
If you can help, please come from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, August 16.
