  • GreenWay Blooming Centre
    When Kees and Sabina Kennema purchased the nursery in Breslau that would become GreenWay Blooming Centre, they knew what they were doing. Sabina was a professional florist in Switzerland, and Kees's agricultural background includes plant breeding and seed research. The nursery enabled the couple to not only expand their production of hanging flower baskets, but also to share their love of gardening and horticulture with others. Today, home gardeners find ample supplies and advice at the full-service greenhouse, and Kees himself is often the one lining their trunks with protective mats and helping them load up their purchases. Annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables, shrubs, winter-hardy roses, patio plants, fruits, and bulbs line the shelves, and the staff specializes in plants that attract hummingbirds and butterflies, which they've planted in abundance at their lushly landscaped butterfly garden. There, visitors relax on benches waiting for a hummingbird to sip some nectar or a butterfly to break into a rare tap-dance routine. The garden also serves as the entrance to the butterfly farm and conservatory, which showcases local and tropical butterflies from the collection of John G. Powers. Powers, also known as the Butterfly Man, has studied butterflies for more than 42 years and presented his collections to Queen Elizabeth II, Pope John Paul II, and President Ronald Reagan. In addition to the butterfly-visiting opportunities, kids can contemplate the fleeting nature of human accomplishment in the indoor sandbox or visit farm animals, including Pepsi the donkey and Maurice the llama. Schools and tour groups occasionally stop by the centre to learn more about nature, butterfly gardening, livestock farming, and other topics.
