Norfolk Botanical Garden–Part 1

Saturday we visited the Norfolk Botanical Garden. Our original plan was to be home by mid-afternoon so hubby could get his yard work done. However, he devised and implemented Plan B when there was so much to see and do–and his motivation to work at home waned. 

Our focus was to see the butterfly garden and butterfly house. We climbed onto the tram that was scheduled to leave on the half hour. The tram offers a 45-minute guided tour of the garden, and draws the rider’s attention to various plants and features. 

We hopped off when it stopped at the butterfly area. I was curious to see what was in bloom there this time of year; we need more fall color in our backyard.

Afterward, armed with a map of the garden, we headed out on foot to explore. More posts to follow…

  1. Gorgeous, and yes, Botanical Gardens is an all day thing! Can’t wait to see more of your pics.
    I thought about going there this weekend, was thinking about the butterfly garden and how we went last year right after all the butterflies left! We ended up hiking six miles at First Landing on Sat so I done in for Sunday…helped me get a lot done on my WIP though!


    1. Well, good! I hope you go soon, SIG. It only took us 30+ years to get there! We’ve driven through the Christmas light display in winter, but never wandered the garden any other time of year. Now I can’t wait to go back.
