Cows, Pies and Butterflies


Grandma’s special sweet potatoes, our savvy make-ahead green beans, the tablecloth with the little embroidered turkeys, and Uncle Henry snoring (while eating) at the table every year—it wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without these traditions.

Imagine walking around a greenhouse packed with lush tropical plants—while butterflies flit around, settling on the occasional branch, t-shirt, or flower-shaped feeder. There are over 30 different species to observe and admire. Keep in mind that the paths in the greenhouse are narrow and not very stroller compatible and that it is very humid in the greenhouse so dressing in layers is a good idea.
