Montreal Biodome and Botanical Gardens – Part 2

Butterflies Go Free at the Botanical Gardens in Montreal.

We entered  in the middle of a series of interconnecting green houses full of beautiful plants.  A greenhouse at one end housed the moths and at the opposite end a greenhouse full of butterflies.  As it was day, the moths were not very active and it was easy to take their picture.  The butterflies, on the other hand, were flying all over.  They would briefly alight on a bush, flower, or even a person, before flying off .

Montreal Biodome and Botanical Gardens – Part One

Sorry everyone.  I couldn’t write my blog on Monday.  I have been ill for the last week and a half and haven’t done anything – no art, no blogging.  However, before I got sick, I went to Montreal with a friend.  We visited the Biodome and the Botanical Gardens.  I thought I would show you some of my pictures from our visit.

The rest of this week I will be busy preparing for and participating in the Ottawa Artisans Guild  Spring Show.

Next week I will post pictures from the Botanical Gardens.

The Biodome is divided into ecosystems: Tropical Rainforests of the Americas, Laurentian Maple Forest, Gulf of the St. Lawrence, and Sub-polar Regions (Labrador Coast and Sub-Antartic Islands).
