Sobote so po novem čas za izlete. Sezono sem otvorila s krajšim izletom v Pomurje. Zaželela sem si namreč videti razstavo orhidej in metuljev. Kam? V vrtni center Kurbus, ki je nekje na pol poti med Radenci in Gornjo Radgono. 
Saturdays are for trips. I opened the season with a show trip here in Slovenia, to Pomurje (north west of Slovenia). I wanted to see the orchid and butterfly exhibition. Where? In a gardening center Kurbus, somewhere between Radenci and Gornja Radgona.

Prvi šok? Guuuužvaaaa. Že zunaj se je videlo, da je ogromno ljudi, parkirišče polno in vrsta za karte, ki, mimogrede, stanejo 7€ za odraslo osebo. Ne vem zakaj, ampak res nisem pričakovala toliko ljudi. Po "tropskem raju" smo se tako premikali v koloni in upali, da me gledanjem okoli sebe ne bomo pohodili tistega pred sabo. 
First shock? Huuugeee crowd. There were a lot of people, full parking and a line to purchase the tickets that costs 7€ per person. I don't know why but I really didn't expect so many people there. We were walking one after another and you just hoped you won't walk all over the person before you, since we were all looking around and stoping to take pictures.

ORHIDEJE
Obožujem orhideje! Prekrasne rože, ki bi jih lahko gledala ure in ure. Tudi doma jih imam nekaj, ampak... bomo rekli tako - strokovnjak za rože ravno nisem, zaenkrat pa še živijo. In v "tropskem raju" sem imela kaj za videt. Vseh barv, oblik, velikosti, zgoraj, spodaj, vsepovsod orhideje. Res lepo urejeno, cvetoče, dišeče. Edini problem: VROČINA. Seveda, če sem pa v tropskem raju ;) Na srečo so ob potki imeli tudi pitno vodo. 
ORCHIDS
I adore orchids! Gorgeous flowers I could watch all day. I do have a few at home but... let's put it like this - I am no flower expert, but they do still live. And at Kurbus I had a lot to see. So many colours, shapes, sizes, from above, down bellow, everywhere around me - orchids. Really beautiful, blooming and it smells sooo good. The only problem: HEAT. Of course, I am in "tropical paradise" ;) Luckily they've put a water dispenser along the way so you could refresh yourself.

METULJI
Tukaj pa je prišel drugi šok. Metuljev je bilo zelo malo, ogromno jih je bilo pomečkanih, ranjenih in v večini primerov so se mi bolj smilili kot bili lepi. Nekateri so bili celo ujeti v "stene", ki so bile narejene iz nekakšnih plaht. Obiska tega dela razstave ne priporočam nikomur, ki ima rad živali. Na žalost nisem opazila nikogar, ki bi skrbel za varnost teh krhkih bitij. Saj vsi vemo, kakšni so lahko ljudje. 
BUTTERFLIES
Here came the other shock. There were only a few butterflies around, a bunch of them had broken or squished wings and I mostly felt just sorry for them instead of admiring their beauty. Some were even captured in the "walls" that were made from some kind of fabric. I wouldn't recommend visiting this part of exhibition to any animal lover. Unfortunatelly I haven't noticed anyone that'd take care of safety of this gorgeous creatures. We all know how people can be like.

PAPIGE
V prostoru z metulji sta bili prosto spuščeni dve papigi. Ena se je pametno umaknila na višje veje, kjer je ljudje niso dosegli in v miru jedla svojo hruško, druga pa je sedela na veji, dosegljivi ljudem. Mene je bila groza. Pa razumem, da se želijo slikat z njo. Ampak, daj nehaj se je dotikat, če vidiš, da se ti umika in jasno kaže, da ji ne paše! Ponovno nisem opazila skrbnika, ki bi pazil na obnašanje ljudi. 
PARROTS
In the room with butterflies there were also two parrots. One was clever and moved to the top branches so people couldn't get to it, but the other was on a branch close to people. I was horrified. I understand people's wish to take a picture. But stop touching it when it's clearing shown you it doesn't like it and moves away from you! Once again, I haven't seen anyone being there to care for the parrots well being.

MOJE MNENJE?
Obisk razstave orhidej je res nekaj posebnega.Orhideje so krasne, ambient čudovit. Če bi pa bilo po moje, bi se tukaj obisk končal. Morda se motim in je osebje bilo pomešano med ljudi in resnično upam, da je bilo tako. Obožujem metulje in vsako leto čakam, da vidim tistega, prvega metuljčka, ki mi s svojo pisano razigranostjo polepša dan. Počasi se zima preveša v pomlad in že nestrpno čakam na prvega lepotca, ki mi bo prekrižal pot, čeprav vem, da se to še nekaj časa ne bo zgodilo. 
Torej, moje mnenje? Glede na ceno 7€ obisk razstave priporočam tistim, ki jih orhideje res navdušujejo. Vsem zanesenjakom, ki bodo ob lepoti rož ostali brez besed. Vsi ostali pa - prihranite denar in se čez par mesecev raje odpravite gledat rožice na prosto.
MY OPINION?
Visiting this exhibition was something. Orchids are amazing and the ambient was wondeful. If it'd have been my way, the visit would end there. I might be wrong and there were people taking care of the animals well being and I trully hope this was the case. I adore butterflies and each year I cannot wait to see my very first butterfly of the year. It brights my day with it's colourfulness and playfulness. The winter is slowly turning into spring and I know I will have to wait a little bit more to see my first beauty this year.
So, my opinion? Since the price is 7€ I can only recommend the exhibition to those that truly love the orchids. All of you that will loose your words by the beauty of the flowers. For all the rest - safe your money and in a few months time see the flowers bloom in nature.
