Callaway Gardens 2012

We made it for our annual visit to Callaway Gardens and had a good time.  We barely made it before February was over.  The Saturday we went was overcast and started sprinkling while we were there, but that didn't slow us down, and it was still lovely.

Eating some lunch upon arrival.

Waiting to watch the "Birds of Prey" show.

One of the feathered friends we met - a cute and tiny owl.

Beginning our walk.

How big is your wingspan?

Chess and Lera are about the size of peregrine falcons.

Momma is a great horned owl,

and Daddy is a bald eagle.

Our sweet butterflies.

Pointing out some butterflies.


We took time to smell the flowers.

There were actually quite a few things starting to bloom outside.

Cookie break!

We saw some turtles on a log.

In the horticultural center.

Happy to find the hidden bench.

The rain started coming down a little harder at this point.


These were my favorite tropical flowers we saw, but I don't know what they're called.

Thank you for free February, Callaway Gardens!
