Butterfly World and Garden

A visit to the Butterfly Gardens with the US home schoolers .  What kid doesn't love butterflies!.


Kids love this butterfly which had wings shaped like dead leaves.

We saw many different types of butterflies.

Next we went to explore the outdoor whimsical gardens.

I enjoyed the outdoor house garden

Dining room garden
 Bedroom garden
 Kitchen garden
 Bathroom garden
 Next we went to the sculpture garden
 The wall was built with recycled material.

Kids enjoyed hunting for the items found within the walls

There was also a bug house were we learned about lots of insects.  Then we discovered the leaf cutter ants climbing a rope all around the building.  Kids loved following them around the room.

We had a lovely day at the Butterfly house and learned lots about butterflies and other insects.  The gardens were amazing and full of fun and whimsy.  We will definitely go back once the construction process has been completed next year so we can see even more things they plan to add.

  3. Wow, another great adventure! I loved the pictures and all the creative spots. Really loved this one!

  4. Where I live in southern Ontario, the butterfly count is at a record high for this time of year, possibly due to the mild winter. Thank you for sharing your adventures with us at NOBH.

  5. This place looks really cool. I just love butterflies.
