Butterflies are Blooming at Meijer Gardens, one of the treasures of Grand Rapids

By
Real Estate Agent with Five Star Real Estate

Three video clips of a fun afternoon that Karen and I had on Friday. The Butterflies are one of the many annual events that make Meijer Gardens such a wonderful place. There are concerts in the summer, sculpture throughout the gardens, beautiful landscaping of every description, and great gift shop, a wide variety of classes, special exhibits (like The Thinker spent the summer looking out at an amazing pond and waterfall while the Detroit Institute of Arts was refurbishing his normal home). If you've not been, it's worth the trip from wherever you are!

What fun to see the butterflies flittering everywhere! They were certainly active.

It was a VERAttacus Atlas (Atlas Moth) at Frederik Meijer Gardens, Grand Rapids, MIY busy day at the Gardens. (Butterfly wise).  Sunny and warm and I don't think I've ever seen so many there at one time.

 This Atlas Moth was so big, that when I first looked at it, I thought it was a cardboard cutout.

It was so cool.  We went at 3:00, so no school kids.  Just a few families.

I've been to the exhibit before, but have never seen the butterflies so active.  I also enjoyed looking at some strange/scary tropical plants, like Devil's Tongue.

I enjoyed it with Jeffy the first time he saw it he was amazed and the smile on his face is what it is all about. Thanks for sharing.
