After breakfast we went to the Tucson Botanical Gardens. We have a long running gag with the grands about botanical gardens ever since we took them to their first one. That doesn't stop us from taking them to more whenever we have the opportunity...even when they groan through their smiles!
Since I love flowers but can't grow them, I must content myself with photographing them. Here are a few of my favorites from there.
The Tucson Botanical Garden has a butterfly house, which was the main attraction for all of us.
That last one, the black & white, is called a Paperwhite and was Dylan's favorite. He was especially fascinated with the fact that they have four wings, so fly erratically. After seeing so many beautiful specimens of flowers and butterflies I still had no trouble selecting the three most outstanding examples of nature's perfection in the garden that day...
And...this was all before noon! Perhaps tomorrow I'll find some time to share with you all the exciting things we did Thursday afternoon! Luckily I was feeling great by then.
