The Conservatory

A few weeks ago, we visited the Conservatory of Flowers in San Francisco. They have an awesome plant collection and I needed some inspiration to lighten up this dreary weather!

The textures of the leaves were unbelievable!

My camera lens started to fog up (can't be good) when I was taking this shot, but it gave the photo a mystical look.

A teenie tiny orchid magnified!

The trunk of a tortoise plant.

The unfurling of a carnivorous plant.

These specimens are to gorgeous to be carnivorous!

Scavenger Hunt Birthday

K started off his birthday running around the house in search of these tags...

Each tag was tied to one of these...

Each Balloon tied tag lead him to a gift...

He discovered a cooler packed with his favorite beer with this find!

After trips to the closet, movie drawer, garage, storage he ended up at the hammock in the front yard...

It was fun for me to watch, but there were many close calls to him finding out what I was up to! This included exploding balloons as I was filling them while he was sleeping, Mochi barking at the balloons while I was trying to set them up around the house in the middle of the night, K wanting to get the cooler the night before and I made it obvious by screaming "NO", K wanting to buy Avatar when I already purchased it for the hunt!

All in all I think he had a GOOD time!
