I finally made it to Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens this year! Thanks to my company giving us half a day off on Friday, I made my way over to enjoy the late, cool, almost cold and overcast spring weather. Friday was also the first day of the Butterflies Live exhibit, which I missed last year. They will be there until October and I plan on going again and actually reading the informational posters as I was, as always, more interested in taking pictures ;-)
While I was in the conservatory, I had to take a look at all of the orchids and other tropical plants.
While I could have spent another hour in there, there were plenty of other things to look at, including the rose garden.
I spotted a cute little family of geese quietly gliding across the pond before making my way over the bridge.
So many things to see!
Can’t wait to see what I’ll spot on the next trip!!
Buy an annual membership, it’s a good value and you get 2 free guest passes to use within that year. Even when you think you’ve shot absolutely everything there is to see there, there’s always something unexpected. Like the time I saw a goose sitting on her nest, or a snake in the pond, or almost bumped into a hawk.
