Garden Center Butterflies
Yesterday, while we went cruising garage sales on our bikes, we found a local nursery, where we stopped because they were selling fresh-picked corn. I didn't expect to be interested in anything else, since from the street it looked like just annuals. Instead, when we looked around, we found a surprisingly large property and a hidden gem: a butterfly house.
All of the plants were marked to indicate which type of butterfly they serve as host to. This butterfly house is associated with the Southeast Michigan Butterfly Association.
At this garden center, they also had water gardens and tanks of koi for sale. You can see some of the ponds in the first photo.
