Here is it, April 19, and it is still snowing as I look out the window. It is lovely but, believe me, nearly ALL Minnesotans are absolutely tired of winter! Fortunately, we have the beautiful Como Park Conservatory in St. Paul to visit.
The new Ordway Garden just opened up and I helped at one of the opening events. That gave me an opportunity to walk the grounds. First, I visited the Japanese Garden. One of my fellow workers stated that in the 25 years she's been working in the Japanese Garden, this was the first time she was able to see the garden in the winter. To her knowledge, the garden has never been open to the public in the winter. As you can see, it was lovely.
The Ordway Gardens are new and were built to house the large bonsai collection at Como.
Finally, the Spring Flower Show is going on.
