Magic Wings is aptly named.
It’s a large greenhouse like building with meandering paths filled with tropical foliage, blooms, birds and…..
Everywhere you look…
There were bright bursts of color flitting from leaf to leaf…
And hat to hat.
The husband was popular among the winged set at first…
But I had my admirers as well.
It really was quite magical.
As a matter of fact, I am.
There were brightly colored birds…
And brightly colored feeding stations.

Yes, I have.
Her name was Samantha, and she was a very sweet girl.
Reptiles need love too….
