Baby its cold outside.

Anyway, the frost is making our fence look like a city skyline. I hope these are the only skyscrapers that we ever have in Grand Junction.

It's Beginning

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, especially in the gift store. Shirley has been tremendously busy getting things ready. Come on and see what she has been working on.


We have lobsters in the butterfly house. Well..... lobster claws.

Yes, We Have No Bananas Today!

Yes, we have no bananas, we have no bananas today! Spike Jones does a much better version of that song than I do. Listen here. I know you are wondering what inspired all that?

We have bananas at the Gardens. We have lovely little green bananas in the rainforest and the butterfly house. Here are the ones in the rainforest.

It was a thrill to walk in this morning and see this bunch starting in the butterfly house.

The first batch of bananas should be ready for eating in a couple of months. Yum!

It Is November

Yes, it really is November. It is getting cold and wintery.

There is snow on the ground and everything.

Looks like the snapdragons missed the memo.

The alyssum missed it too.
