My most recent post had the wrong address for the garden, which I discovered last Sunday when I previewed the location. In just a short walk along the Trillium Trail there were many woodland flowers in bloom, very close to the path.
Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden and Bird Sanctuary Group Outing

- 1 Theodore Wirth Parkway Minneapolis, MN 55411
- Parking is $1:00 per hour

The gardens open at 7:30 AM. This 13 acre garden and bird sanctuary is a popular spot due to the huge variety of flowers and native plants along trails that visit bog, forest and upland prairie habitats. There is no admission fee. Informal photos of plants and garden areas for personal use are permitted while remaining completely on the trails at all times. The use of tripods and other equipment is strongly discouraged. Any tripods or equipment used must remain completely on the trails at all times and must not impede other visitors’ ability to walk on a trail. This time of the year is the best for woodland flowers and spring ephemerals. I plan on bringing a tripod, reflector and diffuser.
Please send your best shots to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll put up a gallery.
