Blue Bonnet

Yesterday, Teddy and I biked down to Nagoya Port and took a ferry to Blue Bonnet, a botanical garden.

Blue Bonnet is a botanical garden on a small island near Nagoya Port. They had a Halloween theme.

This scarecrow had a pumpkin head made to look like a skull.

There were really cool scenes of each season. This one is for summer.

We also saw a beautiful butterfly.

We watched this praying mantis struggle its way out of the water onto a lily pad. I was really glad it made it!

These bees are one of those times that Japan makes me say, “Oh, HELL no!” That is a full sized lily pad, BTW.

We had some friends over that evening, and then, then today we went to Pupu Kitchen for a special lunch.

The meal was a Korean inspired one. It was yummy!

Dessert, on the other hand, was not as fabulous.

Well, that’s all for this weekend!

    I don’t like that bee either! I also wasn’t very impressed with the spider! (You know how much I love insects.) How long did it take you to bike to the gardens?
