Hilo Orchid Society is sponsoring a huge orchid show and sale at Edith Kanakaole Stadium in Hilo June 3-. However, it is more than orchids. Growers of tropical vireya rhododendrons, rare palms and epiphytes besides orchids will be there to share ideas on how to make your Hawaiian garden more interesting and pleasurable. I wish I could be there too, but we are now on the “Bigger Island” of Borneo exploring for rare palms with the International Palm Society.
A U.S. Supreme Court case decided in April shows us the extent to which some tax agencies will go in order to enforce their laws, even across state lines.
