Meijer Gardens Trip May 2022 


We had a lovely cloudy day but the rain stopped in Grand Rapids for us. The bus driver was wonderful. We had time to look around and then a narrated tram ride of the gardens/statues.  Then we had our boxed lunches from April at Tea Pot in a private inside room. Then we Enjoyed the indoor and outdoor gardens on our own.  We saw some of the butterflies especially in the afternoon.  Everyone enjoyed the trip and the driver even drove us through down town Holland to see all the tulips!
