Powell Gardens - 30 miles from KC MO

We visited Powell Gardens, this past weekend. The reason for the trip was their Butterfly Festival but we love going there. It's a beautiful space.
The volunteer coordinator told me they have over 200 volunteers they can count on for events.
Half price membership? Hold me back. We joined.
The normal entry was blocked in favor of having everyone pass through the butterfly breezeway.

All the butterflies in the breezeway are locals, mostly swallowtails. But everyone was in awe nonetheless. Butterflies are irresistible.

There were lots of displays, activities for children, book signing and plant sale for the grown ups.
Outside, the Big Bug art was worth seeing. The artist, David Rogers lives in NY where he also does large branch art.
