Descanso Gardens - The Nature Of It All

I mention Descanso Gardens a lot but I haven't really shared the nature part of it all, the trees, the paths, etc. I thought I'd share my view of more than just the flowers and water features.



While walking through one area this butterfly (pictured below), flittered around and landed letting me take a few photos. I got a little closer and it flittered off but flew around me in circles. It looked like it wanted to land on me so I stuck out my hand and after a moment it landed on the back of my hand. Of course, when I raised my camera to take a photo. Still, that was so cool!

What a wonderful experience with the butterfly. Isn't it great when something like that happens. :) I live the lizard and the gardens too.

I would have got a real kick out of the butterfly landing on my finger too. Nature surely is an incredible world and I thank you for sharing these awesome photographs.

I also want to go there with you and with my camera, it looks so nice an peaceful, green, flower tress and a few animals.

The rose dropping one by one of the petal. It is fun that a dyeing plant can look so good.
