Spring has arrived in Sedalia with flowers blooming city-wide. At Bloomin’ Gardens Greenhouse, 1500 Ewing Dr., Christy Stone, on right and her mother Janet Collister, both of Sedalia, shop for flowers for their planters. Greenhouse Director Lori Fowler said Bloomin’ Gardens will have an open house from 9 a.m to 4 p.m. Saturday. The greenhouse has thousands of plants, Fowler said, and unusual plants such as the Garten Meister fushia.
After a rough winter of snow and ice that caused one of its limbs to fall, a tenacious lily magnolia blooms from ground to the sky at Broadway Boulevard and Barrett Avenue Thursday afternoon.
