Butterfly House

West of town, the Missouri Botanical Garden's Butterfly House is a very cool place. Actually it is at constant shirt-sleeve temperature, and at any given time there are 1500 butterflies fluttering in the air, resting, or eating.  They arrive as chrysalises from butterfly farms all over the world and are released when they have completely metamorphosed into butterflies.  Just sorry it took us so long to go there.

  1. I'm ashamed - I've never been there. Now maybe you've given me some motivation.
