Are you sick of snow and dreary weather? Brighten up with a trip to the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory at Como Park Zoo in St. Paul 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, May 6. The cost is $55. Even if it’s still cold outside (we hope not!), the temperature inside these glass rooms is always tropical. Vibrantly colored flowers bloom in the multiple gardens, including the Ordway Gardens, a $2.8 million building and landscape addition that opened April 19, 2013. After our visit to the Conservatory, we’ll stop at Bachman’s Floral to admire, perhaps even purchase some flowers and plants for our home gardens.
The bus will leave the Stearns History Museum parking lot at 9 a.m. and return at 4 p.m. Coffee, cookies, and great conversation on the bus. Lunch not provided (lunch/coffee room at Bachman’s). All this fun for only $55! RSVP by April 29.
