ELOISE BUTLER WILDFLOWER GARDEN

MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA


EMILY + MATTHEW

A LATE SUMMER WHIMSICAL PARK ENGAGEMENT

Some of the best places in the sprawling urban park that is Minneapolis are like the family jewels: well hidden, unassuming, yet magical once found.  I knew this when I came across the mystical winding trails of the Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden.  The emphasis should be on wild here, as this not grandmother's nursery garden.  Here you'll find tangled vines, chattering chipmunks, sprawling golden meadows, plump wild berries and conifers reaching towards the sky.  So many micro-environments make this a truly special walk to go on and explore nature with couples on these cherished trails, as I did here.
