The flurry of activity around Butterflies LIVE! and the Garden has been incredible these past few days.  What an incredible way to kick off the summer!

I’d just like to take a few minutes to thank and round up some of the blog posts of Richmonders who decided it would be a good idea to come see our Butterflies LIVE! exhibit for themselves and give the rest of Richmond and Central Virginia a preview. The really cool thing is that they all decided to do this on thier own.  From movies, to photos, to blog posts, each was inspired by the Garden or the butterflies. So cool!

Plus we’ve gotten some great local media coverage as well.  And Elevation just finished our 15 second TV spot that will be airing starting June 1st — so if you have 15 seconds, take a peak!

In fact, the response in the blogging world has been so tremendous, I’ve decided to host a blogger tour of  Butterflies LIVE!  If you are interested in participating, just email me at jonahh [at] lewisginter [dot] org and I’ll add you to the list! Hopefully, we’ll have some live Tweeting from this event as well.  The date is still to be decided.

So here goes:

Plus,  RVAnews.com featured one of my blue morpho photos as their photo of the day.  And Style Weekly had a cute  write up on how everyone loves butterflies because they remind us of our ability to transform ourselves. (Very true!)  Plus you can always see some of our latest and greatest photos on Richmond.com. They featured the butterflies  in an article a few weeks ago.

I’m sure I’m missing someone, so if you’ve seen a blog post or media coverage on Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden recently, or you’ve written something yourself, please feel free to leave a comment so we can link to it.

  1. Don’t forget the RichmondWiki article on Lewis Ginter: http://www.richmondwiki.org/wiki/Lewis_Ginter_Botanical_Garden

    Wish I was down there this time of year to see the exhibit. Are you familiar with the Meijer Gardens near Grand Rapids, MI? They are closer to me and have a great walk-through butterfly exhibit. I took my little cousins last year and they loved it.

    Thanks for the comment Andrew. You know I love RichmondWiki! I haven’t been to Meijer Gardens, sounds nice though.
