Discovery Garden's butterfly house






Thursday, September 3rd at 6:00 pm the “swells” turned out for the VIP cocktail reception for the Rosine Smith Sammons Butterfly House and Insectarium presented by the Texas Discovery Gardens. After speeches, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres; the “swells” climbed the stairs to the three story glassed area where they all received their own butterfly in a small envelope.

On the count of three envelopes opened and Monarchs, Painted Ladies, Peacocks, Viceroys and Tiger Swallowtails flew. Butterflies landed on flowers, hands and noses. Only two known fatalities resulted from overzealous clapping.

The Discovery Gardens will also host sculptors participating in the State Fair Sculpture show this year. Don’t forget to walk through the gardens and discover the sculptures. You might find a fabulous mosaic flamingo by Fascinating Flamingo Artist, Staci Whitten. The State Fair of Texas opens September 25th.
