One of my favorite things to do in the Twin Cities is to visit the Como Park Conservatory in the spring time. The sunken garden is always full of the most beautiful flower displays with combinations seldom seen in nature here in Minnesota; things blooming together that are usually a few weeks apart in our slow to warm up climate.
This year we have those same amazing blooms happening all around us. Tulips, daffodils, lilacs, rhode’s, flowering crabs, bleeding hearts, trilliums, forget me nots, wild ginger and more all in bloom at the same time. The colors, the scents and the beauty are overwhelming.
Nancy and I went to the Arboretum early on Sunday morning to walk among it all. Our walk was interrupted several times with the need to stop and smell the blossoms along the way. I was refreshed and reconnected to Nancy as we drove home. What a treat!
