It's important to slow down and take time to enjoy the little things before summer is gone.

Take time to stop and smell the flowers.

But be warned, smelling the flowers at Meijer Gardens could make you hungry.

The Popcorn Plant is blooming at Meijer Gardens.  The leaves smell like popcorn.  The flowers look like popcorn.  It's always a favorite of kids visiting the gardens.

Unfortunately, it won't be too long before the popcorn-scented landscape at Meijer Gardens is replaced with something reminiscent of another movie theater treat...Sno-Caps.

But let's not talk about that just yet.

For now, just throw a bag of popcorn in the microwave and imagine the smell as you check out the video.
