Tucson (Part 2)

WOW! I’m on a roll. 2 posts in one day.

We were able to visit Disney World last October for the Wine and Food Festival. It was fabulous. While we were in Tucson, we heard of a charity event that was a wine and food festival. Right up our alley! With 75+ vendors, all supplying samples of their wares, we were in.

I can’t detail all we tried, but there were wineries, breweries and restaurants galore. The event was held at the Tucson Botanical Garden which was a treat in itself. The highlight of the garden for us was the butterfly exhibit.

While I admire their beauty, I have no idea what the names of any of these orchids or butterflies are. Feel free to comment with their identification! Click on any of the photos for a larger version.
