Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park - I
In the first Week of July – 2011, we went to Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, in Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA.
FMG Mission Statement:
To promote the enjoyment, understanding, and appreciation of gardens, sculpture, the natural environment, and the arts.
We went up with my Son and Daughter in law from Benton Harbour to this wonderful place. It’s about 1 1/2 hrs drive and it was well worth the Drive. The park is Michigan States second most visited attraction.
Here the first sculpture, at the Parking area. Se the two faces?
The Entrence –let’s start the visit indoor enjoing the Tropical Flowers and Plants.
We were fascitaned by the blue colours here - Orhides
Wonderful flowers and colours here as well – Orchides
In the tropical section you will find a subsection with Pitcher Plants. Very fascinating. Watch your fingers and nose;-)
More Pitcher Plants – See how they trap insects below:
