Just too busy!

I've just realized that it's been a week since my last post!
Having my nieces here, going hither and yon, cooking,
working and plain having fun, I really wonder how women do it?
How did I do it years ago AND work full time?!
So I'm taking a minute to take another breath and post a few
photos from our trip to the Butterfly Gardens...
Hats and hearts alike.
Delicate, deadly, Datura...
 One curious and gentle parrot.
Alien larva.
Leopard pitcher plants.
Floating art.
Flaming floral art.
 Asleep in pink pajamas.
Blue loving the bananas.
 Slowing down the teenagers.
...and so the adventure continues.

One must take time to smell the roses, admire the butterflies (and other creatures)and embrace to fun stuff!! :)))) We had a female (they are red)Eclectus parrot for 15 years! Thanks for sharing your adventure! :)

I've never seen anything like the leopard pitcher plants. Unusual, for sure, but beautiful. Love all the other photos of flowers, butterflies, and birds too! Nice photographic work!! Happy weekend!
