On a lighter note... one of the best kept secrets in mid-Michigan is the beautiful Dow Gardens. The place is mostly maintained by a trust fund from the Dow family... as in The Dow Chemical Company, so you can actually buy tickets - for the whole year(!!!) - for the low low price of $5 each. Now the real reason I'm bragging up the place is because gramps and i created a website last year about their butterfly display... Butterflies in Bloom... and the Dow Gardens has linked their site to it again this year! Of course, I'm honored and thrilled by that fact... and of course, the photos - taken by Frank - are beautiful!
