Was here for my cousin’s wedding. It was a beautiful location! Although I didn’t have a chance to go inside the butterfly exhibit, I could see them through the windows. Neat place to visit.

We were there in the fall and caught the end of the roses and the beginning of the mums. It was very pretty, and I am sure it would be even better in the summer. Great how all the varities and trees are named.
