"Butterflies of the Caribbean" is the current show at Cincinnati's Krohn Conservatory.  The garden room is alight with fluttering butterflies!  delightful!  Some even land on people.

beautiful orchids

Cincinnati has a wonderful plant conservatory.  Recently, I enjoyed the butterfly exhibit.  While there, of course, I had to visit all the amazing plants!  These lovely orchids covered in water droplets caught my eye.  If anyone knows the variety, please share.

garden serenity

Ambling around the grounds at the Cincinnati Civic Center a couple days ago, I came across this lovely pond.  The explosion of lush greeness and blooms in this city oasis was so soul refreshing.

a few more words!  note the beehive.  There are wall (or Lazarus) lizards sunning on the rock in the foreground.  These non natives were brought to Cincinnati in 1951 and released into a backyard.
