I've been meaning to get to Olbrich for the last few weekends to see the butterflies and well...you know how it goes.... So today, since I think it ends in a week or so, I finally went over there.
I took my buddy Hannah Banana from next door with me.
We saw waterfalls...
Koi fish (Hannah calls the white one with black spots the 'cow fish').
Beautiful flowers (Doesn't this orchid look like it's in the depths of a dark cool glen? In actuality the conservatory was eleventy-billion degrees and humid! Butterfly weather!)
We saw a lot of butterflies but only Monarchs and Yellow Swallow Tails. I think maybe the others have lived out their two week lifespan and we missed them.
Double click on this one to biggify. It's worth it.
The beautiful colors of the butterflies and the vividly hues of the flowers was breathtaking.
We went to Culvers for lunch afterward and stopped quick into Pet World to see all of the animals. I got to hold a Fat-Tailed Gecko and now want one....of course. He was much cuter than the one in the Geico commercials! I didn't hear him talk though. I was kinda relieved about that.
After we go home, there was a knock at my door and there was Hannah with a wonderful thank you card and a beautiful bouquet of flowers to thank me for taking her to Olbrich. I should have thanked her, she was wonderful company!
Next time: I finished a couple if knitting projects to report on!!!!
