Butterflies and flowers

There hasn't been much happening on the crafty front at all lately around here, mostly because my sewing room is a complete disaster and it's much easier to avoid that room than to deal with the mess!

After spending the day Saturday lounging around, reading and watching movies, Joe and I decided to go to Niagara falls on Sunday to take some photos.

We started out a the butterfly conservatory in Niagara Falls.

It was beautiful there, but oh my it was HOT!!!

After that, we went to a greenhouse that is operated by Niagara Parks.

The flowers were breath-taking but I have no idea what any of them are called.

We had a fun day and a fun evening processing all the photos we took. I'm so glad Joe decided to get himself a digital SLR, we're having a great time learning about photography together.

Oh Karyn, your photos are stunning! You know I'm partial to flowers and that pick and white one is definitely one destined to be printed, framed and put on the wall.

They're all great photos, but I like the first butterfly best. I haven't seen one with that pattern before.

Beautiful photos, Karyn. We went to a butterfly conservatory when we lived in Ohio, and I remember it being very balmy in there.
