P R I N T. Animals features numerous wildlifelike stags, giraffes, turtles and storks created in Italy by designer Gianmaria Buccellati. The collection is housed in a striking gallery that overlooks the museum's large back lawn, an outdoor venue for community events. The Huntsville Botanical Gardens makes great use of many volunteer groups that have been assigned plots, where they grow and maintain ferns, hostas, daylilies, etc. We visited the garden's John and Tine Purdy Butterfly House, where monarchs, tiger swallowtails, zebra longwings and other types of butterflies live out their brief lives. Creative water or play stations in the complex are favorites with children, whose parents can take a break with a book. The entire property encompasses 112 acres, and seasonal offerings, like the Scarecrow Trail in the fall or the Galaxy of Lights over the holidays, are favorites with locals and groups. Lowe Mill is a creative restoration of an old three-story mill that has been designated for art studios. More than 130 artists now occupy 92 studios, and visitors are invited to watch them work or to purchase their art. Outdoor concerts there routinely draw hundreds of music fans. MOBILE.
