A visit to Biosphere

My daughter Amber and I spent some time this morning at Biosphere Nursery in Winter Garden.  We had fun walking around exploring the grounds where butterflies and bees were busy gathering nectar from the broad assortment of flowering vines, bushes, perennials and trees for sale.

Below are a few pictures I took while we were there. Thanks to Amber for helping me out with some of the plant names.  Her memory for such things is far better than mine.

And another look at the Eastern Black Swallowtail
