A Lovely Autumn Day

The weather here in Iowa has been beautiful this week - it sure doesn't seem like November - sunny and highs in the 70s. With yesterday being my husband's final day of vacation, we decided to take advantage of a perfect day and visit our local Blank Park Zoo. I was excited to see my favorite Red Pandas (so adorable!) outside...and several fluffy baby flamingos! I also had to post a few colorful photos of a cute Giant Madagascar Day Gecko and some Gouldian Finches...

Just a note: I am almost finished making the prizes for my upcoming giveaway - they have just taken a bit longer than planned - stay tuned for details later this week...

For tonight, I am back to model stitching for a class I am teaching in 2011 - I have multiple deadlines quickly approaching - so much stitching, not enough time!


  1. wonderful pictures from the zoo...

  2. I love visiting zoos and aquariums. Your photos are great.

  3. Wow, I have never seen a red panda. They look kind of different from other panda's I think. Kind of like a cross between a panda and a fox.
    It's been over eight years since I have been to the Blank Zoo.
    What a great time spending the few last remaining nice days in Iowa at the Zoo. Can you believe it is going to get reallly cold this weekend?

  4. Beautiful photos - Thanks for sharing :)

  5. I've never seen a red Panda! What an interesting looking animal. In fact I loved all your zoo pictures. Thanks for sharing.

  6. What great zoo pictures! Have only seen a Red Panda from a distance! What a fuzzball the baby flamingo is! Thanks for sharing your trip to the zoo with us!
