Souvenirs from the seagulls.
Deck pots & pot feet....on my deck...
New for this summer - butterfly weed.
linda_in_iowa mentioned in her message about her recent trip to Costa Rica that some of her group went to a Sloth Sanctuary. I don't know if it was the same one, but I went to a Sloth Sanctuary several years ago.
A model of a prehistoric giant ground sloth
One of the Sloths they are caring for
Baby Sloths in the Nursery squabbling (slowly) over a leaf
They also offer a guided boat ride on canals behind their facility
Where our sharp-eyed guide pointed out many animals and plants including a green basilisk lizard:
bright blue crabs
and an egret
as well as bats, a caimen, howler monkeys, a brown basilisk lizard, and various other birds, and trees and plants and because today's theme seems to be flowers, I'll end with a flower.
Jim - Your butterfly weed almost makes me weep! I had one I loved, but had to give up my perennial bed after 50+ years..... Love the pic!
