Callaway Gardens

Callaway Gardens is giving free admission to enter all of January and February, so we thought we would make a day of it. There wasn't anything in bloom outside, but the indoor greenhouses were full of gorgeous flowers and the scenery was still beautiful. We found plenty to do and see.


Ready for the drive!


How many toys can one little girl fit on her lap?


It was such a beautiful January day: 65-70 degrees.


taking a lunch break


Chess, waiting for the "Birds of Prey" show to start. She was looking at some other little girls sitting on the same bench as us and copying the way they were sitting.


The owl was a big hit with Chess. After that she got bored.


This is in the butterfly center. It is a humid 85 degrees in there.


This is the only dang butterfly that would sit still for a picture.








Welcome to our humble home.


in the greenhouses


I really thought we were going to go home with a soaking wet child with all the ponds and fountains at this place.






We left with two tuckered-out girls.

That's actually a really cool butterfly to get a picture of. I've never seen a green one like that.

I've always wanted to go here but never wanted to pay. Thanks for the tip. It looks beautiful! Is it free every day in Jan/Feb, just weekends, or what's the deal?
