Every Summer, Hundred Of Butterflies Visit Kirkwood Gardens In New Hampshire And It’s A Surreal Sight

One of the most lovely parts of the summer is the increase in wildlife we see in New Hampshire. Just a few minutes outside can reveal everything from furry friends to new birds to even the bugs that sometimes annoy us. We’ll take it all if it means the weather is warm and we can spend time outdoors. And while we enjoy all types of wildlife here, it’s the butterflies of summer that we love the most. Spend an afternoon at this garden and you could be surrounded by them!
