Come along to Robin's Nest to see what's blooming at my house! I might also go exploring or look around my home, so come visit my nest anytime.

Blooms and Butterflies
Every year at the Franklin Park Conservatory in Columbus Ohio, they have a program called Blooms and Butterflies. I love it! Now I love the FPC anyway, but adding butterflies to their beautiful gardens makes it even better.

On this visit, there was an extraordinary number of butterflies about. We also got to witness the daily release of new butterflies, which thrilled me like a small child!
There were no small children there that day, which is quite unusual, so I took their place with my wonderment. The docent releasing the butterflies was asking questions of the group, and with me being a butterfly gardener, I often had the answers for her. I guess you could call me a butterfly geek, but it's a nomenclature I would wear with pride!
If you ever get the chance to visit the Franklin Park Conservatory, please do so, especially during the Blooms and Butterflies exhibit. You won't be sorry!
