One comment on “Ames”

Ames, Iowa, is home to the world’s largest concrete gnome. This gnome lives in the Reiman Gardens among oak trees, seasonal pumpkin displays, and a very impressive collection of exotic butterflies. The gnome and the exotic butterflies are not in the same enclosure. You aren’t allowed to wear shoes or a coat in the butterfly enclosure.
