Niagara Falls Butterfly Conservatory, Pt.1

Niagara Falls, Ontario

Welcome Back!

This week I'm starting to highlight the butterflies (and other photos) from the Conservatory in Niagara Falls! We've gone there several times, although it it much nicer in the summer as they have gardens and ponds to check out...We were here last March, so we ended up just visiting the attractions inside...

Here is the website if you want to check them out the next time you are in Niagara Falls:

I cannot remember all the names of the butterflies, so I'm just going to leave these here and let you enjoy these un-named beauties! Their website is not very informative in regards to identifying them, so that's my excuse! :-) They sell a booklet that tells you about each one and I do have one somewhere! It is probably packed away at this time...

Enjoy! More next week!

Have a great week!

Bird Kingdom, Pt. 19 (and Last)

Bird Kingdom, Niagara Falls, Ontario

Welcome Back!

This is the last of the photos from the Bird Kingdom in Niagara Falls! Next week, I'll have some photos from the Butterfly Conservatory in Niagara Falls!

These are photos of the Silver Pheasant, Scarlet Ibis and Green-winged Macaw. Lots of colourful birds there!

This week went by fast again..don't they all? :-) We took Kevin out for dinner on Saturday night for his Father's Day dinner as both girls worked today. I went and got my groceries and did laundry and all that fun stuff today! Also managed some time in the craft room yesterday and today, I read a couple of short novels! A perfect, relaxing weekend!

Have a great week!

Bird Kingdom, Pt. 18

Bird Kingdom, Niagara Falls, ON


Welcome Back!

Sorry, I haven't posted in so long (2 weeks)...I've had headaches due to allergies the last two Sundays (the day I usually post), so I didn't want to look at the laptop, much less sit and edit photos. I still have a headache today as well, but it's not as bad...

These photos from the Bird Kingdom are a mandarin duck, blue and gold macaw, umbrella cockatoo, a golden pheasant and a black bird that I cannot identify. It is either a female or perhaps a juvenile, so the colouring is different on their website..just my thought! :-)

Things are going well at work..busy as always! Had to work yesterday and teach a class, so spent the rest of the weekend doing laundry, groceries, etc...got to spend some time with the girlies yesterday..they were both here! We've been fortunate to have dinner together almost every Friday night too! Loving it!

Kev, Zeek and I have been going on a lot of walks after dinner most nights too, if the weather permits and I don't have to do anything else! Counting down til holidays...still 2 months to go! sigh!

Have a great week!
