Butterflies are Blooming at Meijer Gardens

By
Real Estate Agent with Greenridge Realty Oakmont

Every year around this time, I love to go visit the Butterfly Exhibit at Frederick Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids, MI.  If you have never seen it, You Must Go!

Breathtakingly beautiful, the butterflies flit amongst orchid plants in full bloom, and an amazing array of some gigantic tropical greenery in this huge atrium.  

Every year there are new additions to the butterflies and the orchids, and it is fascinationg to see the cocoons in various stages of hatching these winged fairies.  There are also a few unusual birds that grace the atrium, and even a creek and a waterfall!

The parking is free, and outside you can enjoy the beautiful sculpture park, as well as the artist gallery inside.  Entering the butterfly exhibit, you will also tour the greenhouse with succulents of almost every kind imaginable, interspersed with spring flowers!  

 

Grand Rapids is a great place to live! Enjoy!

I knew you had to be somewhere close.  There couldn't be two Meijer's.  I didn't even know they had a garden!
