Everyone is used to my pictures of veggies and flowers from the garden. While those things are beautiful, I think they get kind of boring after a while. I wanted to add something whimsical to the pictures that can still highlight the scenery and natural beauty while also adding an element of fun and interest. I considered a few options like a Barbie (too many outfits and accessories), a gnome or troll (not really my thing), a black cat or beagle, etc. I ultimately landed on dinosaurs. I have always loved dinos and had dinosaur toys as a kid. I knew that I would have the most fun with dinos and Florida has kind of a natural prehistoric look AND dino toys are cheap and awesome looking. So, ultimately an easy choice. Now I might have a couple of dinos in my bag for whatever adventure I might be heading to next. Here are some of my favorites:

An army of dinos ready to start posing!
Some of the first scenes taken from the yard – spinosaurus on the crazy mushrooms and Pterodactyl flying over the orchids
The dinos will sometimes interact with wildlife
The beach provides great scenery for some marvelous dino pics!
The dinos also fit into the Indian River Lagoon waterway on my snorkeling and floating adventures
Ptyerodactyl reminds me of the cormorants and anhingas that sun themselves on the rocks
The dinos also come with me on my state and local park adventures. Part of the fun for those that know the parks well, is trying to figure out where the vignettes take place.
Scenes from neighborhood walks, Riverbend, Mounts Botanical Gardens, and miscellaneous Florida State Parks
T-rex loves flowers
The dinos also love to have a good time and be a little silly (you can thank Jeff for most of the silliness)
