This past Sunday "My Sweetie" took us to visit "Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park" in Grand Rapids, Michigan. It is approximately 1 1/2 hours drive from our home. The purpose of going is that all the beautiful butterflies are now blooming. Along with the very lovely butterflies many of the tropical flowers were blooming too.
Here is a photo of two lovely butterflies. The bright orange and black one is called a "Postman" and the other one is called "Blue Longwing". They all come from Columbia, South America.
Here is a photo of a very unusual tropical plant called a "Pinecone" tree.
This very lovely butterfly is called a "Brush-Footed Tree Nymph"!
This is one of many sculpture in the park.
Another very unique and interesting sculpture.
We went to the Conservatory on March 15th and on this lovely day we walked around with no coat on. Mother Nature is being very kind to us with an early Spring after our very long and dreadful winter. Thank You Mother Nature. This day was good for the soul and it brought many smiles to our face. I hope you all enjoyed the photo tour of our Conservatory. We plan to go back to see many outside flowers blooming this summer.
