In a flawed attempt at garden maintenance, amateurs often construct a scarebee to deter pesky pollinators from cross-contaminating precious thoroughbred plants. Experience an expertly cultivated garden with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets to Butterflies in the Garden at Fort Worth Botanic Garden (up to a $20 value). The event runs from March 3 to April 8, with admission daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This spring, the tropical conservatory at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden paints its fanning greenery with the wings of more than one thousand butterflies. Patrons can stroll through 10,000 square feet of snaking pathways to glimpse Central American, Asian, and native butterflies flitting between ferns, sipping on nectar, and handing out autographs to star-struck caterpillars. As a waterfall fountain burbles and jungle trees cast their fronds over visitors' heads, the vibrant insects perch on orchids and occasionally on the hands of lucky visitors. Guests can also scope out pupae and witness the ongoing stages of metamorphosis, which, like those of human development, culminate in a restless quest for sugary sweets. Though the exhibit welcomes children into the conservatory, strollers are not permitted.

Fort Worth Botanic Garden

Blanketing more than 100 acres, Fort Worth Botanic Garden houses several disparate gardens that welcome locals and tourists whether they want quiet reflection or a social stroll amid arboreal beauty. The Fragrance Garden lives up to its name by engaging olfactory zones with a dozen uniquely scented plants. In the 7-acre Japanese Garden, visitors commune with plants and animals, including the pond's koi fish and their pet minnows.
