I hope everyone had a great 4th and got to spend a little time doing something fun. I spent my evening baking and mopping, but this afternoon we went to the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens to see “Butterflies Live!”
I think it’s a pretty silly title. Do the Butterflies have a hit single? Aside, from the silly title, the exhibit is pretty neat. Inside of the large green house (Richmonders forgive me for not knowing the proper name of the building), is a room where newly hatched butterflies are released. There are about 200 in the room at one time.
I wore a flowery shirt in hopes that some would land on me, but none did. They didn’t seem to be landing on anyone though, so I didn’t take it personally. We waited about a half an hour to get inside, which I doubt is normal. Entrance to the gardens and the exhibit was free today. Thanks Lewis Ginter!
