Spring at the Rawlings Conservatory

 The Rawlings Conservatory in Baltimore’s Druid Hill Park comes to life in the spring, both inside and out with a flower show and new plantings.

 “Catch a Rainbow,” the spring flower show is open now through April 8. Featuring hundreds of blooming bulbs, the show presents a kaleidoscope of color and texture in the greenhouses of the Conservatory. It might still be cool outdoors, but inside, it is definitely spring.

 On May 17, you can try a cocktail made with botanical ingredients at Cocktails at the Conservatory, a biannual evening event with live music and snacks from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. It’s a pleasant spot for enjoying a beverage and mingling with friends. See www.rawlingsconservatory.org  for details.

 A bit later in the spring, the Rawlings’ outdoor gardens bloom when dozens of volunteers unite on Community Gardening Day, May 24, to plant the flower beds with annuals. The conservatory staff plans the design of the beds and orders the plants. The volunteers do the digging and planting. Everyone finishes with a picnic provided by the Friends of the Rawlings Conservatory. The gardens then provide a restful and colorful spot for visitors to the park throughout the spring, summer and fall.

 

 Other events take advantage of the pretty backdrop of the conservatory, such as the Charm City Blue Grass Festival, April 27-28, with a pop-up concert April 19.  http://charmcitybluegrass.com/index.html

 The Druid Hill Farmer’s Market, http://www.druidhillpark.org/farmers-market.html, brings farm vendors as well as free yoga, movies and other activities every Wednesday from June 6 through October.

Imagine… waking up to the sound of light rain tapping on your window. The children awake with a sparkle in their eye, they run through the house full of excitement to the conservatory. For a moment they worry the day is ruined, but with the press of a button, the walls glide across the floor, opening your home to the beautiful outdoors, transforming your room into a protected outdoor retreat.
