Today my friend and I went out and about, first we went to a greenhouse and butterfly garden, then a 2nd greenhouse and then over to a rock quarry to get rocks for my new rock garden, then after we unloaded 1/23 of the rocks and were sweating to death from the heat lol (more about that in the next post). It was 29 C / 84 too hot for doing this lol
Wow what a difference from when we went in May, not nearly as many flowers and plants, but still beautiful and a lot of fun!
These birds are rescues and live in the greenhouse.
This moth or butterfly was flying through the greenhouse, think it came from outside, nothing like this in the butterfly house. It is beautiful and landed on the perfect plant for me lol
This butterfly landed on my friends head LOL
This is a Button Quail family. They have 4 babies two days old, they are the size of a quarter. The first picture is the Daddy with 1 baby, they were off adventuring. The other photos are of mom and the babies. There were also lots of single birds roaming about.
These 2 pictures were taken May 21st, this is to show you how little these 2 Dorking chicks were.
Now look at how big they are, so neat to see them older. Beautiful birds.
This is an outdoor sanctuary... beautiful!
This was at the rock quarry... not sure what kind of bird this is!
