We are blessedly out of routine with our visitors these days. And a lovely way to break away for a leisure morning is a visit to the botanical gardens.
Each season has its delights. But for me this time it was the hibiscus with its huge blooms and luscious colors.
Our gardens have a butterfly pavillion attached which is as big a hit with adults as with children. Kids give us an excuse to follow our own noses for awhile. I like letting the youngsters set the pace whether it's a minute or an hour. Today they chose a delightful and engrossing hour to be enclosed with colorful wings and flowers. Here is just the smallest sampling of our outing.
Now this is a succesful plant!
I hope you're having your own lovely and colorful week!
Ciao! for now!
