Win Passes to Brookside Gardens Wings of Fancy Butterfly Exhibit

For our August 2015 Washington Gardener Magazine Reader Contest, Washington Gardener is giving away the five sets of passes to the Brookside Gardens Wings of Fancy live butterfly exhibit in Wheaton, MD (each set has two passes and is a $16 value). 

   Running daily through October 25, from 10am to 4pm, Brookside Gardens South Conservatory features live butterflies. 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. See more details at

   To enter to win a set of passes, send an email to by 5pm on Monday, August 31, with “Wings” in the subject line and in the body of the email. Tell us which was your favorite article in our August 2015 issue of the magazine and why. Please also include your full name and mailing address. The pass winners will be announced and notified on September 1.


The winners chosen at random from among the submitted entries are:

~ Melissa Merideth, Bethesda, MD 
~ Stephanie Richard, Rockville, MD
~ Katie Rapp, Gaithersburg MD
~ Madeline Caliendo, Washington, DC
~ Joletta Humpert, Silver Spring, MD
Congratulations and enjoy the butterfly exhibit!
