Spring has sprung at Olbrich Botanical Gardens, it was time to see what was going on in the plant world!

We had some warm weather recently that begun to make some flowers begin to come up outside.  Inside though were flowers one would see from May to August, all at one time!  Here  is a guide to the many flowers present that you could look at while you were there.

The event was in the same room where the Holiday Express was, now outfitted for spring.

The theme of the show this year paired specialty artisan-designed furniture surrounded by the many flowers featured. These were the manufacturers represented.

Let’s see how creative these two mediums could be blended together. Here is a beautiful pond display. Here is a close up of the light fixture.

We finish our visit by venturing outside, rumor has it snowdrops and crocus have been spotted here as early as Feb 29 (Facebook post).  It was true! Such brave flowers to grow even though it could snow again at any time.
