Discovery Gardens


After spending an hour at the DMV for Cathy to re-new her driver license we headed over to Tavares to walk around the Discovery Gardens.  This is a small garden but has always been one of our favorites.

We always find something new there.

Remember the Movie Little Shop of Horrors, this could be the plant that kept saying "FEED ME"
The leafs bloom red and then slowly turn green.

This is called the Yesterday-Today & Tomorrow plant, that's because it blooms purple, the next day it's violet and the third day it's white.
Just a neet looking flower






One of the volunteers makes these from things she picks up at garage sales and has them placed around the gardens.

Peace River Wildlife Center Revisited

Did another bike ride out to PRWC .  There were about ten times more people then normal today.  We found out that the center had been on Fox and Friends this week, they did a story about a rescued Eagle that was electrocuted last week.  I think everybody was there to see the Eagle but it was in a confined area until it gets stronger.
So this is what we saw.

A Few More Eagle Pictures

Stopped by today to see how the baby eagles are doing, the babies are starting to get big and flex their wings.  We were told that about another 4 or 5 weeks and they will be ready to leave the nest.
