Spokane in March is hardly inspirational. Oh, sure, I do get excited when I see the first sprouts pop out of the ground, but I am not quite so naive that I take that as a sure sign that Spring will follow close behind. Sometimes it happens . . . more often it doesn’t!
So when I saw a recent challenge from Paula McDonald entitled “What is Springing Up in Your Area?” I must admit I grumbled a little. I just knew other AR members would have posts with great pictures of blossoming trees and a population in flip-flops, while mine would be showing the first little tips of some brave but foolish perennials that I would have to dig out of the snow before I could even photograph them. They were there last week . . .I swear!
While driving down Bernard today I saw a sign.
Plant sale?! In March? Did the Friends of Manito get a little carried away with last week’s balmy weather? Now I must say I am rather drawn in by crazy behavior . . .if nothing else the absurd is good fodder for a blog post, so I decided to go find out more.
A flyer on the door of the Gaiser Conservatory in Manito Park told me what I needed to know . . .it is a TROPICAL PLANT SALE which is happening on March 3 in the Manito Meeting Room. I have long ago given up torturing house plants, so it is probably not an event I will attend, but since I was already at the door of the conservatory there is no way I wasn’t going inside!
Opening just two glass doors transports me from a dreary Spokane day to a tropical forest filled with exotic flowers . . . moist warmth . . .sweet floral smells . . .the soft babbling of a brook . . . PURE BLISS!
Of course, I had to take lots of pictures . . .some to show you how great Spokane is even if our Spring is not yet springing! The rest are to hold me over till Spokane’s glorious outdoor gardens boast their finery!
