Summer is over, temperatures are cooling down. It's a good time of year to take a stroll in one of Tucson's lovely Botanical Gardens, have some lunch at the Cafe´ Botanica, stroll through the gardens taking note of the LEGO exhibits, and visiting the Butterfly and Orchid Pavilion for the Butterfly Magic Exhibit. Magnificent! It is open October - May.
Friend Gini and I (Ms. Karen), decided to spend last Monday afternoon at the Tucson Botanical Gardens, with the excuse that we had not eaten at Café Botanica and wanted to try it out. In addition, We wanted to see what renovations have recently taken place. There are many, and many more to come.
Gini and I timed it right and arrived on a Monday, just after 11am. We had not been there in a while. The entrance has moved. it is now on the far end of the parking lot (East) and boasts a new, larger, museum store.
Gini and I paid our dues, she is a member, and proceeded to wander about the grounds seeking out the LEGO Sculptures, checking out the "Weird Cactus" plants and motating towards the Butterfly exhibit.
After a short time, we found the Butterfly exhibit which was guarded by a docent who informed us that there were two doors, one of which had to be closed before the other was opened. We were also warned to watch our step as there were Poison Dart Frogs hopping about.Read More
