Reiman Gardens

Ames, Iowa is home of the Reiman Gardens.


It consists of 11 gardens, including a rose garden and a children's garden.





There was a nicely landscaped model train section.


My favorite was the tropical indoor butterfly garden, with 800 butterflies -- 80 different species from 6 continents.

To get an idea of how thick the butterflies were, watch this video.

Just look at this black Iowa dirt! Back in Virginia, we'd have to buy this by the bag.
