Greenhouse @ Fred Meijer Gardens

Last week Max and I had the opportunity to freely explore the Fred Meijer Gardens Springtime family event. Seeing as how viewing the “butterfly room” had been on both of our to-do lists since last Spring, we happily took advantage of the opportunity!

The greenhouse at Fred Meijer is unlike anything I've seen before (in Michigan). It’s absolutely incredible and magically transports anyone who enters to a paradise of butterfly hopes and tropical dreams. I can’t even begin to imagine how long it took to grow some of these trees and vines to be so luscious… but the word that comes to mind is decades!

This place was absolutely beautiful! You could feel the humidity in the room and you could smell the plants. These sensations made my heart ache for summertime and for Mexico (family vacation or honeymoon number 2 would do!).

It was a PERFECT way to spend a dreary Tuesday in Michigan. A Tuesday that was knocking on May’s door, yet still snowing… yeah I needed the humidity and tropical magic of that room J

  1. Ahhhh!! This post is right up my alley! I love it! Haven't been to that place in years and years. Glad you enjoyed it. Did you discover a new favorite plant? Did you learn some new plant names? I'll have to take a visit in the near future to see what's new since I was last there.
