Wildflowers & Butterflies

While at Glenlaurel, stroll the grounds and enjoy all the natural beauty. From early spring well into summer and early fall, the wildflowers are sure to be a spectacular site. Many of the wildflowers at Glenlaurel are hard to find elsewhere…one more thing to love about Glenlaurel!
