Saturday Critters ~ 197 ~

On our first day in Canada, one of the first places we visited was
The Butterfly Conservatory
Over 2,000 butterflies, 45 different species call this tropical paradise home.
Let me share with you a "few" of the images I took.


The next four images are of the of the lush garden itself...





Next are the butterflies, I took over 100 pictures.
This may seem like a lot of pictures but these were my favorites and what I thought were the best.

Niagara Falls

The hubs and I took a few much needed days off and drove to Niagara Falls.
It's not a hop, skip and a jump...
It's a long drive from home, about 8 hours, but we enjoy the alone time in the car,
and I brought plenty of stuff to do and eat.
I brought my computer in the car and worked on deleting pictures, not an easy task.
I knit, play on my I-Pad, and we always have one game for the car.
This trip we played the...

"License Plate Game"
The hubs is driving so I check his off for him!
We are both kind of competitive,
 only one person can benefit from a license plate, so you have to be quick.
We are home now, and we had such a fun time.
And we forgot nothing - no suitcase was left behind.

Pictures tomorrow, today I must get settled!!

oooooh and just in case you didn't notice, I lost 25 - 21, can you believe the hubs beat me?

Watching it Open...

If you could stand in one place, for a few days, 
and watch her open her pedals and reach toward the sun...
it would look something like this...

Butterflies by the Bay

You may remember this Butterfly Garden from last year.
Located in Seaside, New Jersey it was planted by and is maintained by the local residents.
I love that concept!
We didn't really see any butterflies, but the garden is well kept and the sign is new.








The Cosmos were gorgeous.


Way off in the distance, more to the right, you can see the bridge that leads into Seaside.
And the view, it can't be beat. If I were a butterfly, I would definitely hang out here!
