Botanica Gardens Wichita Kansas

We went to Wichita to see the Butterfly House at Botanica.
The first photo is of a plant kaleidoscope in the sensory garden. The bowl of plants rotates while you look through the kaleidoscope viewer and it is spectacular.

Notice that everything in the Sally Stone Sensory Garden, including the beds behind the kaleidoscope, is at the height a child or an adult in a wheelchair would need.

These are two shots from the Jayne Milburn Aquatic Collection.





Muskogee Parks and Recreation is beginning to plan a butterfly house for Honor Heights Park and our trip was to gather information since Botanica's butterfly house has been in existence for almost 10-years and they know what they are doing.
