I love watching butterflies fly about and land on everyone -- especially children. It's such a simple pleasure! Never knew about this place, and it's always good to add another stop to one's (evergrowing) bucketlist. Thanks, Samantha!

Re: Butterflies Everywhere at the Butterfly Farm in St. Martin

Thanks for the message DrFumblefinger. You are right. I really enjoyed watching the kids get so excited when one would land on them. Of course that scared them off, but it was still fun. Glad you enjoyed the post and was able to add to your bucket list. I know mine is huge and keeps getting longer and longer, lol.

A wonderful post. It reminds me of the Hacienda Buena Vista outside of Ponce, Puerto Rico. This is an old plantation. The created a network of small canals throughout the grounds to use water to run equipment.

True confessions - all this talk of almond croissants had it's effect and while I was out I went by a local bakery. Sorry, almond croissants tomorrow, almond tarts today. The tart did just fine and, as it happens, I'll be in the vicinity tomorrow, too. Visiting gardens for Gumbo readers...someone's got to do it. Stay tuned.

I had a vision of a farmer cropping his field with a scythe in one hand - and a handkerchief in the other mopping his hot, weary brow. Yes - I know he had a machine. I prefer my picture. Back to nature !

Re: September 8, 2016: Amber Fields of Grain, Washington

DrFumblefinger ·
No more scythes to be found anywhere, Garry, except perhaps in a museum. Most of the farmers in eastern Washington state are still small independent farmers with smaller, older machinery. Modern combines and tractors are about four times larger, can do a lot more work in an hour, but might set the farmer back almost a million dollars. It's expensive, risky work. I admire the spirit of farmers everywhere.

There's an endless line of ships from Baltimore into Liverpool with crops to be milled into flour. Soya bean for animal feed. We have Amber waves of grain here . Some farms go on for miles and miles too. But I believe they're still nowhere near the size of the great American Prairie.

Re: Merry Christmas from Knott's Berry Farm

Your post brought back many wonderful memories of past visits to Knott's. We also lived in California years ago (and have since moved away, as have so many) and made a point of visit Knott's every Holiday season because our kids enjoyed it so much. The place is busy, but not nearly as crowded as Disneyland and the admission much more reasonable (probably about half or even less). The park is wonderfully decorated and there were unexpected treats for the kids -- their first toboggan ride down...

Re: April 4, 2018: Mother sheep and lamb, Wales

PortMoresby ·
Whether landowners are in favor or not, public access to footpaths and other rights-of-way are protected by law in the UK in perpetuity. Any landowner who tries to fence them off or otherwise deny access will soon find an angry mob of activists helping them correct their "mistake". http://www.environmentlaw.org.uk/rte.asp?id=207 Lovely photo!
