Manito Conservatory

Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.  
Rachel Carson

Scotty and I try to make a pilgramage to Spokane's Manito Park at least once a month.The Conservatory is one of my favorite places.  I can't wait until I am old and can't do Living in the Garden anymore so I can turn our conservatory into a permanent display just like Manito. I loved what they did here with the Tulips and Agave, what tension between the fragile, ephemeral tulips and the "century plant". love it love it love it
