Usually going to the exhibit later in the season, we saw fewer butterflies Saturday, both indoors and out. As people exit, travellers will ride on clothing into the great beyond, so the gardens nearby can be as exotic and butterfly-laden as the exhibit inside.
Rather than being able to show outdoor butterflies, here are some stellar flowers shining on their own: iris, pansies, peonies, etc.
My next post will be on the strangest flower I have ever seen, a series on the stages of this odd stalk.
PS - My son has his first orthodontics visit next week. I want so much for him to smile with his teeth showing again.
