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 Café Botanica, stroll through the gardens taking note of the new 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 one 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.
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.
We paid our dues, she is a member, and proceeded to wander about the grounds seeking out the latest exhibits, checking out the "Weird Cactus" plants and motating towards the Butterfly exhibit.
