Dominic, love the mom and baby giraffe! Such a sweet kiss! The elephant looks ready to take on the world. Thanks for the nice wake up photos.

Tony, what a way to wake up and get started, that dear little fuzzy elephant, the square fish (I didn't know they came that way), mom and baby hedgehog, and the orange butterflies perfectly matched to the flower. I think it is a cosmos. What do you think it is? I am definitely going to put in cosmos this year if it attracts butterflies, hopefully orange.

Thank you Tony!

 Ostraciidae is a family of squared, bony fish belonging to the order Tetraodontiformes, closely related to the pufferfishes and filefishes. Fish in the family are known variously as boxfishes, cofferfishes, cowfishes and trunkfishes. It contains about 24 extant species in seven extant genera
