Floral Friday – Beautiful Creature

Monarch Butterflies are probably the most recognizable and studied butterflies on the planet.  I am more into dragonflies but this little guy was so beautiful with his big orange wings laced with black lines. He was flitting and fluttering having its lunch on what appears to be some type of milkweed but considerate enough to…

First Day of Fall

It’s fall y’all! For me falls here in New York means a new season with its crisp air, chunky scarves, show stopping leaf displays with vibrant reds, oranges and yellow leaves, apple cider, warm blankets and snuggling by cozy fires. A busy time for us with the kids back in school and trips to the…

I love to see the kaleidoscope of thousands of spectacular rare and iconic specimens of orchids on display but because of the crowds I was a…
