Self Contained, Butterfly Magic in Tucson

March 19, 2014 4 Comments

Each year the Tucson Botanical Gardens hosts an orchid, butterfly, and now tropical frog display for the public.  It is popular with families and with me. I enjoy the humid tropical mist on my skin and the fun of watching the butterflies and people.  Yesterday there was a lot of activity.  Kids love to use the magnifying glass, no matter why they see in it.  It is  a small lesson in science, botany, biology, and ecology, adapted for all ages.  Who doesn’t like butterflies?

Break with Butterflies

In the dark of winter I love to visit the tropics by going to the Butterfly Magic show at the Tucson Botanical Gardens.  We are fortunate to have such a special nature spot with a controlled environment.  Kids and grown ups are all delighted by a short stay in a world of unusual beauty.  It is also fun to be hot and steamy in a greenhouse when the wind is blowing cold outside.

A trip to the botanical garden refreshes the spirit and gives a natural buzz to the day. I love to visit the butterfly house to see what they are doing.  Today the orchids made me very happy.
