Always looking for an interesting place to walk, I strolled the grounds at Tucson Botanical Gardens. The highlight of the park was the butterfly center. Staff members or volunteers limited the numbers in the enclosed area, and carefully checked for butterflies that may have landed on a visitor before allowing each person to leave. Flora inside the space has been chosen to attract the inhabitants. Brushstrokes of color fluttered by.
Huge sculptures by Alex Heveri of dragonflies, butterflies, and bees towered over the desert plants. The sun illuminated her bronze, steel, clay, and thick bubbled stained glass creations. The Glass in Flight exhibit is temporary, but those colorful insects seemed to belong in that place.
