The garden show last week only whetted our appetite for more things spring-like and green. We were in luck because right in the heart of the east side is the City of Cleveland’s Rockefeller Park Greenhouse. Pat and I decided to visit ahead of the blizzard that is on its way.
Outside was a cold and snow-covered landscape, suitable for snow shoeing, skiing, sledding and other assorted winter activities. But not gardening. We pulled into the parking lot and were pleasantly surprised to see other cars in the parking lot. Inside we went, joining others in search of a winter respite. Inside it is perpetually hot and green. The sights are also very, very cool. The place is full of plants that I could never grow, but then, that’s why there are places like this.
The orchid room was straight out of Nero Wolf. My post only shows a few of the hundreds of orchids that filled the room.
