Big Bugs at Leu Gardens
One sunny and perfect afternoon, my six year old and I set off to check out some Big Bugs!
Not any ordinary bugs mind you. These were colossal, wooden and awe inspiring!
These bugs were on display at Leu Gardens in Orlando, Florida.
"Leu Gardens teems with vigor and beauty, regardless of the season. Discover palms, cycads and flowering trees. Enjoy azaleas, vines, bromeliads and tropical philodendrons. Appreciate the sight of familiar annual flowers and the beauty of roses and camellias. Stroll under the awe-inspiring branches of camphor trees, elms and oaks."
In addition to science, my son got some good practice on how to navigate a map in order to find all the Big Bugs!
