Chelsea Garden Butterfly Pavillion!

Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of checking out the Butterfly Pavillion at Chelsea Garden in Norwich. The Butterfly Pavillion was a Monarch Butterfly exhibit that went on for 4 days, and it served to display beauty and educate about the life cycle and different phases of this classic winged siren. There were a thousand Monarchs (give or take one or two) released in a mesh tent strewn with fauna and flowers so that we could observe them in a contained, natural environment. It was only 5 bucks to get in, and watching the little kids' fascination with these butterflies was simply priceless. I, along with the other adults, was rather transfixed by the experience as well. Check out my perspective:
