I’m Batwing!

This guy (I think it is a male) is the black Atrophaneura Varuna or Batwing Butterfly; a member of the swallowtail family sans the tail.  Of all the butterflies at the wonderland, this one stood out the most!

Very Old and Very Unusual Car Week #5

The 1903 Ford Model A.  The first vehicle made by the new Ford Motor Company, incorporated June 16, 1903.  I don’t think this was the ‘first’ vehicle made but the first model they made; would be amazing if it was THE first.

Rainbow Sorbet – Florabunda

One of my favorites to say hello to when I visit the roses each year.  I think there actually is a rainbow sorbet out there somewhere to eat.  It’s summer, it’s hot, I think I will go try to find some.  Have a great weekend!

Bullseye

Bullseye (sometimes spelled Bull’s Eye) is a shrub rose that is said to have a sweet spice fragrance, is nearly thornless and very resistant to black spot.  Sounds like something I stand a chance of being able to grow.

Rugelda the Rose

It wasn’t just the beautiful color of this rose that caught my attention, it was the way it grew.  There it was, this bush growing in an arch with all of these gorgeous buds and roses on it.  Who could resist? I couldn’t…
