Enough with all of this talk. You want to see some pictures. Of course you do.
Here is some of the flora that I found in abundance at the zoo!

Cactus blooms only last one day before they begin to degrade. I was lucky to find so many!
|I have no idea what this is, but it looks really cool!|
|I wanted to wade right into the middle of these!|
|Love, love, love the two-color petals!|
|Who doesn't love fragrant roses!|
|This is the stump left when a large branch was removed. So COOL!|
|Hibiscus blooms are awesome!|
Next we have some of the ever-spectacular fauna...
|The lioness looking large and in charge.|
|See the beautiful grass!|
|This shot should be a postcard!|
|This guy had so much personality!|
|This shot is for Bev @ Flamingo Toes!|
|How about that profile!|
|You've got to love the warty pigs!|
|Together now, AWWWWW!|
This little guy was living at the top of the elephant enclosure.
And a few shots of the Merry Weather!
|I love this picture!|
|Do you see the raindrops disturbing the surface of the water?|
Finally, a few shots of my own little monkeys...
|Look at me!|
|Look at Mommy, Sweetie!|
|No, not at each other, at me!|
|I'm over here!|
|Oh wait, that is a real monkey...|
|Here, here, here, here, here!|
|*Shaking head* Never mind...|
We had a great day! You should visit a zoo near you soon! May your day be full of Flora, Fauna, and Merry Weather too!
