Conservatory Charm

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

One of our stops on our way through Canada earlier this month was Niagara Falls, we all wanted to see the big waterfall show and take the ferry underneath its mist which we did and it was awesome!  Another stop we made was a place I’d read and heard about, the butterfly conservatory in the botanical gardens.  I’m always up for a walk through some pretty gardens and if a butterfly habitat is included, well sign me up! 

The butterfly conservatory was like walking through a story book or enchanted secret garden and so charming to have thousands of beautiful creatures fluttering so gracefully around you among tropical foliage and an indoor waterfall.

Did you know that most butterflies have very brief life spans?  A few migrate, and a few others can live for many months, but most butterflies have only two to four weeks to live.
