...but, the sun is shining which means that the butterflies are dancing and the flowers are blooming inside the Frederik Meijer Gardens! The annual Butterflies are Blooming exhibit opens March 1 and will continue through the end of April. The butterflies don't pay attention to dates. If you happen to stop in early on a sunny, snow-filled winter day, just to breath deep and embrace anything green, you might catch a few fun photos.
there are always beautiful arrangements to see when you enter
The orchid display always smells amazing.
Love the texture...
...and back outside we go...
We love the Gardens at any time of the year. We've loved to see it grow and change through the years and especially love that we had our wedding reception there when it was quite new. Seeing it grow and bloom has been a joy.
