Reiman Gardens - Part 1, the Butterflies

I have posted about Reiman Gardens before but it is truly a great place to spend an afternoon.  The butterfly section is fantastic and each time you go (when you go once or twice a year like we do) is different because of the sculptures they have at the time and because different plants and flowers are in bloom.

One of these times I will get the photo that I want of the beautiful blue ones - they thwarted me once again last Summer.

They seemed to have more of these giant moths this past Summer as well :)

We always stop by the butterflies first when we arrive, next up is the sculptures :)
