Today, my family and I spent some time at our local zoo. I love the animals, but the zoo's gardens are my favorite part of a trip to the zoo. I am always more excited to see the next thing blooming than what the animals are doing! Here are some of my favorite shots from today...
|Mamma Duck and Ducklings...They were so sweet!|
|Butterfly Bush, close up!|
|American Kestrel, He is a Gorgeous Creature!!!|
|"Cheyenne" Mock Orange|
We had Mock Orange in our arrangements at our wedding...the whole church smelled wonderfully of their scent, so they will always be a favorite of mine! I wish I could share the smell of the honeysuckle too...just glorious! And truely, one should always take time to smell the roses!
The flowers are so spectacular this spring, I am though roughly enjoying them! I hope they inspire you to create something beautiful, as they do me.
I'll photograph that lovely hankie with tatting that I bought and brought home tomorrow...today I was busy enjoying the flowers, the animals, and my daughters' & husband's company. Until tomorrow then...may you find time to enjoy the flowers you see and pause to take in their scent!
