Lots of flowers for Janice B. Hope you like the flower pictures.

The iguanas would line up on our morning walk to breakfast. We would bring back a banana for them on the way back. It was fun to see them run to get some pieces of banana. We enjoyed seeing them everyday and they always brought a smile to our faces.
I swear they pose for you.
