Hot Summer Day with Tiny Hippo

Tiny Hippo is Too Hot

Argh, it is too hot!

I must go inside to find something that will cool me down

Thank you, Sprinkle Fairy!

The Perfect Ice Cream Cone

Now it is a masterpiece, I must take it outside and enjoy it quickly

BRAIN FREEZE!

Tiny Hippo is Pleased

Nothing is better than a vanilla cone on a hot summer’s day. I need a dip in the pool, I have made a bit of a mess.

 

 

Of Burrowers and Butterflies

I went to Reiman Gardens this weekend and enjoyed a lovely tour of the grounds. My favorite part was the Christina Reiman Butterfly Wing, it was full of delicious flowers and many winged creatures who seemed to like flowers as much as I do.

Look at how this delicate creature enjoys the flower

Orange and Black Butterfly

This butterfly reminded me of the mighty tiger, eek

This little guy was not as brightly colored as the rest, but he was still charming

While not as brightly colored as the rest, this little guy was still very charming

I kept startling the butterflies as approached to make friends, they seem to be very timid

This kind lady shared her secrets of finding the best flowers with me; sadly, I am sworn to secrecy

To end my visit, I sat quietly with this fellow, he seemed rather tired, I was not sure why, the butterflies seemed to think that was normal for his kind, whatever, that means
