Just outside the Washington Beltway is another local gem, Brookside Gardens. They have many shows in their indoor space, annual Daffodil Society and Daylily Society shows to name just two. Lots of paths for strolling, beautiful gardens and plant displays, a live Butterfly exhibit from May through September and a lighting display for the holiday season. They have a small, but very nice gift shop.

Here's a link to their website: http://www.montgomeryparks.org/brookside/

One of the many spring displays.

We visited to see the Daffodil Show, but hit the gardens during the peak of April bloom!

Tulips, anyone? Big Grin

In the peaceful area by the lake, they've got a memorial to the victims of the snipers who terrorized the DC Metro area for weeks (it seemed like forever Sad ) in 2002.

Some of the beautiful butterflies at the "Wings of Fancy" exhibit. The first one was pretty funny. In spite of all the brightly colored flowers in the room, AND the Hawaiian shirt I was wearing, this guy kept landing on my black camera bag! Hilarious!
