Recently while visiting my best friend and cousin I was able to go with her to where she works at a local greenhouse. She works as their perennial manager and has such a love for her plants! Because she was taking time off to spend some time with me she was not going to be at work as usual. I don’t think anyone takes their job as seriously as my wonderful cousin. She got up early every day to water and tend to her babies! She truly cares for them and I hope her employer knows what a special worker they have in her!
Anyway one evening I went with her to water the plants. It was very hot, but I didn’t mind, as I was in photography heaven! I stalked bees, ants and butterflies as if I was a hunter in Africa! I had a great time zooming in and out of all the well cared for plants, sneaking up on the insects and snapping away! Nothing surprises me as much as the fact that I am totally fearless of bugs when I have my camera with me!
I hope you enjoy some of my favorites that follow.

Beautiful photos, Laurie! Thanks for braving the bugs so we don’t have to!!!
makes my job look so cool!
you sure have some talent!
Beautiful! I love the pink with the butterfly the best.
Oh how beautiful! I wish you could see the botanical garden here at the University of Fairbanks Alaska. My son worked there last year as his first job. I never got to actually go in and look around. When I do I’ll be sure to get some pictures to show you. I love plants too. Your cousin is so lucky to have such a wonderful job.
Well Alaska is definitely on my bucket list! However, not sure how well I would do in Alaska – cold weather really makes my body hurt! I would love to see any photos you post! Thank you.
