Each winner of our June 2008 Washington Gardener Reader Contest received a set of two passes each (worth $10 per set) to the "Wings of Fancy" - Live Butterfly Exhibit at Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, MD, The event runs May 3 through September 21, 2008 from 10:00am to 4:00pm daily.
Asian, Costa Rican, and North American butterflies take flight in Brookside’s international exhibit celebrating its 12th season. Be surrounded by butterflies flying freely among the tropical flowering nectar plants. Come witness the butterfly life cycle as tiny eggs hatch into crawling, chewing caterpillars, which then encase themselves in jewel-like chrysalides and emerge as sipping, flying adult butterflies. Learn about the best annual and tropical plants, and hardy shrubs that are used as nectar sources to attract butterflies to your own garden.
Stay tuned for our July contest to be announced on the 15th.
