Wings of Fancy:  Butterfly Exhibit at Brookside Gardens, Wheaton, MD

  

Chef Dolores and I always enjoy our visits to Brookside Gardens which is located in the Wheaton Regional Park in Wheaton, Maryland. The Conservatory exhibits are outstanding and the acres of gardens are beautiful.

Each summer, the Brookside Gardens South Conservatory is the location of the Wings of Fancy Live Butterfly and Caterpillar Exhibit. The photographs in this post were taken by Dolores Kelley.

When you live in Montgomery County, Maryland, Brookside Gardens should be a a family resource for their educational programs and exhibits.

Butterflies are such gorgeous creatures there are almost no words to describe them, Roy. I remember going to an exhibit in St Petersburg, Russia some years back and it was amazing.

It's been many years since I was able to attend a good butterfly exhibit.  Actually, it was 1994 in Victoria, BC.
