A Little Photo Stroll


It was warm enough yesterday to get out and garden, but the gardening needed me too much to take photos.  So this morning I did a little stroll with the following results.
I love butterflies and was delighted that this one let me get close and snap away.  I need to research what kind of butterfly it is.   It will be some time before we see anything like this back North.
This plant was perfectly fine 2 days ago but several nights in the 20s really took a toll on certain plants.  I THINK this was a "Moses in the Boat" plant.

We protected the two Jade plants in the garage (small one) and with a sheet (the large one we can't lift).
I remember how long my mother babied a small Jade house plant in the North and it never reached anything like this size.
I consider this "The Best For Last".  Maybe it is because the Bird-Of-Paradise  is close to the house and protected by it, but there doesn't seem to be any damage from the cold.  Thanks goodness, because this is R.'s pet plant.
