Video Wednesday: Butterflies Flutter-by
The interns and I visited the Wings of Fancy, the live butterfly exhibit at Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, MD, last week. Here is the video they created from their experience.
It runs daily through September 17, from 10am to 4pm, Brookside Gardens South Conservatory features live butterflies. Come witness the butterfly life cycle as tiny eggs hatch into crawling, chewing caterpillars, which then encase themselves in jewel-like chrysalides and emerge as sipping, flying adult butterflies. Learn about the best annual and tropical plants, and hardy shrubs, that are used as nectar sources, to attract butterflies to your own garden.
Note: The exhibit is located inside a greenhouse, which is usually 10 degrees warmer than the outside temperature and more humid.
