Wordful Wednesday-tropical flowers and wildlife

I LOVE tropical flowers. One of my favorite parts of our vacation was being surrounded by lush tropical foliage…….and as a bonus……..wild animals.

There was a pair of baby ostriches that wandered free on the grounds…..3 caged tigers and a bunch of large parrots.

The kids LOVED it. I could have done without the smell. But that’s just me.

    I hear ya on the smell thing. But isn’t amazing to see such young wild animals wandering free amongst humans? Those flowers are beautiful! I am imagining the fragrance now!

    Wow, that is pretty darn cool. Beautiful photos.

    I am over here at 2:30AM my time b/c one of the babies woke up. I was thinking that I would be in the top ten on the list but I guess there are a bunch of night owls out there. Oh Well. 🙂

    Wandering wild animals freak me out – not in a shoot them kind of way, but in a let someone else enjoy it kind of way.

    You’re a brave mama.

    And the smells. Yeah.

    Adore the flowers though! Bet those smelled a lot better 🙂

    I love the flowers. It reminds me of the USVI , the island of St. John. We honeymooned there and have been back 8 times since. Such beauty.

    I miss the flowers in Hawaii. The ones you can just pick and sew into a Lei. CA has some nice flowers too. We have tulips. And snow. Still waiting for spring…
