Klehm Arboretum And Botanic Garden, Rockford — The Fall colors are spectacular in the ArboretumKlehm Arboretum And Botanic Garden, RockfordKlehm Arboretum And Botanic Garden, Rockford — The very words “butterfly garden” conjure up thoughts of a whimsical, enchantingly delightful area. Butterflies have long enchanted us with their beauty and seemingly haphazard flight. It is not difficult to attract these captivating insects into our yards and gardens. Nectar and host plants, sunlight, a water source, a rock or two and some shelter will do the job.Klehm Arboretum And Botanic Garden, Rockford — Springtime at Klehm Arboretum and Botanical GardensKlehm Arboretum And Botanic Garden, RockfordKlehm Arboretum And Botanic Garden, Rockford — Turn down the winding path leading to the Nancy Olson Children’s Garden and enjoy the sights, sounds and scents of nature. As you stroll across the bridge to the entrance of the garden, enjoy the sounds of two waterfalls and watch the fish swimming in the pool.  You have just entered a garden designed for a child's view.  Come out and play with us.
