Fragrant blossoms welcome spring to `the jewel of Druid Hill Park.'

Focus on Nature

Rich reds, vivid yellows, pretty pinks: These are just a few of the colors you'll see at the Spring Flower Display at the Baltimore Conservatory and Botanic Gardens.

The conservatory, once known as "the jewel of Druid Hill Park," reopened last fall after a major renovation. Now open year round, it has permanent exhibitions of palms, some of which are shown here, orchids and tropical, Mediterranean and desert plants.

The spring display, with hundreds of fragrant daffodils, tulips, lilies and hyacinths, is one of several shows planned for 2005. If you want to see the spring flowers, though, you had better hurry. The display closes at 4 p.m. today.
