A hint of spring

Reiman Gardens conservatory

Reiman Gardens will preview its "More Than Meets the Iowa" 2013 theme year Jan. 26-27, which includes the "Winds of Change" display in the conservatory (pictured). Sculptures inspired by nature will be featured throughout the gardens, created by artists with Iowa ties. Outdoor displays will begin opening in April.

Youth discovery stations will be operating on Saturday (10 a.m.-2 p.m.) and Sunday (noon-4 p.m.). On Sunday, children will be admitted free, and adult admissions will be donated to the Story County Plant a Row for the Hungry program. As part of the preview weekend, the Reiman Gardens gift shop will feature Iowa products, including free snack samples. Photo by Bob Elbert.
