“When you have only two pennies left in the world,
buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other.” -Chinese Proverb
Supernatural Flower Power
What: Flowers of all kinds
Where: Manito Park in Spokane, WA
When: Spring and Summer for outdoor blooms or year-round within the Gaiser Conservatory (find hours here).
It goes without saying, but beautiful flowers can be found pretty much everywhere. That said, there’s one place we will definitely visit to see flowers in the springtime and that’s Manito Park in Spokane, WA. One translation of the Algonquian word manito is, “an object that possesses supernatural power.” How fitting! To me, all flowers seem supernaturally beautiful and unique. ♥
The 90-acre Manito Park features five gardens and the conservatory. Here are some photos from our visit in Spring 2016.
Rows and Rows of Heavenly Color
