Spring Flower Show

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 12 March 2015 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Garfield Park Conservatory’s 2015 Spring Show, “Sun Showers,” opened on February 14, 2015. Continuing the Conservatory’s grand reopening year theme, Sun Showers celebrates the revival of the Show House and its seasonal shows following the terrible hail storm from June 30, 2011 which left much of the Conservatory severely damaged with so many panes of glass shattered. More than 200 yellow umbrellas hang from the glass ceiling, celebrating both the rain and sun that bring us hopeful spring flowers.

Hundreds of blossoms including azaleas, camellias, daffodils, hyacinths, hydrangea, orchids, and tulips fill the room with their beauty and aroma. The Spring Show reminds Chicagoans in the midst of winter that warmer weather and colorful gardens are soon to follow.
