Anita's KitchenButterflies in Bloom
- Dow Garden's Conservatory
Midland, Michigan

When is the best time to see the butterflies?   Butterflies are available 10AM - 4PM all week long through April 19th. They are the most active on warm, sunny, days. This is when you're the most likely to see them in flight. On cloudy, cooler days the butterflies are restful. You're more likely to see them resting on a visitor's palm or clustering with their own species. This creates a wonderful photo opportunity!
