In my not-so-humble opinion, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, has the most gorgeous gardens to be found in this hemisphere! I cannot imagine many public gardens that can rival the beauty found on the grounds of Ontario parks….they are meticulous and wonderful!
Ever since I was a little child, I remember loving paying visits to the horticultural gardens located near the falls. When Canada added the butterfly conservatory, that was just the icing on the cake!
We arrived here at about 4 pm, and since the conservatory closes at 6 pm, I wanted to hurry inside to get some butterfly pictures! I stressed as I hurried along the walkway, hoping that the family wouldn’t grow anxious as I spent time inside. Mark, the kids, and the Scotties all waited in the truck as I went in. Hey, this was my Mother’s Day present, and since no one else was especially interested, they opted to watch a movie on the laptop while I wandered inside with the flutterbies!!!! (since it was kind of expensive, I didn’t mind going solo….no one to bother me while I had the camera…er, okay, I admit it….I had both cameras…..in my grubby little hands!
Okay, no further words, except to say that the basket of pansies and the horse were seen on my way to the conservatory!
