Reed and I traveled to Blue Earth, Minnesota today to deliver some plants to my friend Felicia. I especially wanted to take her an orchid cactus that has a big bud ready to open. Also called night blooming cereus – mine is still blooming.
We also took her a pretty big Hoya, a pencil tree, two varieties of aloe, pregnant onion, heart shaped Hoya, several cacti and a Moses in a Basket – and a couple more I don’t know names of.
We went to the Dairy Queen for lunch and then walked over by the “sprout”. Blue Earth is the home of the Jolly Green Giant.
It was 94 degrees! Here’s Reed!
And here’s where he’s standing – between the legs of the Jolly Green Giant!
Another visitor in the park offered to take our picture with Felicia by the sprout. Do we look hot? We were!
When we got home we did the chores and then Reed wondered if we’d have time to dissect the owl pellets. Here they are – regurgitated food from an owl found on the ground near an owl tree. Pellets are made up of bones, teeth, feathers and other non-edible parts of prey.
Here’s Reed pulling the pellet apart and finding bones, teeth and feathers.
Hazel loves Reed and got as close as she could.
You’d think she had a contribution to make, wouldn’t you?
