CLEVELAND -- The 10th anniversary of the Glasshouse at the Cleveland Botanical Garden prompted free admission for guests Sunday.
Children got up close and personal with butterflies -- even getting to hold them. Other guests took advantage of the beautiful views of exotic plants and wildlife.
"It's a wonderful experience every day to be here, to be surrounded by all these living things and I think the biggest treat is when we open up and we get to see the people's faces," said horticulturist Mark Bir.
The Glasshouse spans 18,000 square feet and is one of the few in the country that has a rainforest and desert.
