Butterfly Gardens Art at Springs Preserve


Last week, I was on in vacation in Las Vegas and did not blog at all. Bad blogger I am. On the good side I took tons of pics of things I did. Most of it are places that many people don't go because it is not gambling or drinking. One of those places is Springs Preserve. It a place that celebrates the nature side of Vegas. I will blog about it later.

While walking through the Botanical Gardens part I noticed these metal butterfly's that serve as guideposts. I found that they are metal swallowtail butterfly's done by a Las Vegas sculptor names Miguel Rodriguez and were painted by local artists:














Hope you enjoyed. Much more to come from Vegas.

  5. We almost took in the butterfly gardens in Boca, but $27 a person was a bit steep.
