Spring Flower Show


Vibrant colors

red, orange and yellow

a refreshing feast for the eyes

for the winter-wearied heart

I recently attended the 2019 Spring Flower Show at the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory that is located near my house.  I try to make it to Como as often as I can, it’s a wonderful place, and the conservatory is especially refreshing to visit during the long winter months here.  Those of you who have been with me for a while may recall numerous posts about this place over the years.  Sorry, not sorry, for the repetitiveness, but I LOVE it there!

This year’s Spring Flower Show was dominated by tulips and was all about the reds and yellows.  I don’t always fancy those two colors in combination, but it was working for me this time.  It was so beautiful and such delight to see those bright, vibrant colors when things are so drab and dreary outdoors here right now.  Although there’s still beauty that can be found even in those muted tones, I’m really ready for some color.  Not to mention, the smell in there was absolutely amazing!  Too bad there isn’t a scratch and sniff App…

Feast yours eyes…


There was also a touch of white mingled in with the addition of gardenia…


They also have a Fern Room at Como…

As well as an Orchid Room…

And even a Koi pond…

And this is all only a fraction of the beauty there.  As I said…  it’s a wonderful place!  I’m so grateful to have it so nearby!

Thanks so much for letting me share it with you.  Wishing all of you a beautiful, brilliant day!

    • Thanks, Randall. I’m so grateful for indoor spaces like the conservatory to go to and get my flower-fix when Mother Nature is taking her time with spring. And Minnesota is notorious for being a slow poke – we have 12-18 inches of snow expected for Wednesday thru Friday. Spring may never come… 😉


I'd love to hear from you!
