Spirit of Springtime in Niagara

Dear Readers,

We know that you’ve been cooped up indoors for a long, harsh winter… We know that the snow drifts have been taller than your car (or in some cases, your house.) We understand that your eyeballs have frozen solid in their sockets! We are here for you. We’ve taken it upon ourselves to warm the cockles of your heart and soul. We may not be able to offer you any soup for the soul, but we can give you a feast for your eyes. Ah yes, we know some of you live where the weather is warm year round…. Lucky you. But, you can look too.

While we were freezing our socks off here, we took a day to visit the neighboring city of Buffalo. We included two things in our day trip – first we went to the Buffalo and Erie Botanical Gardens, which was displaying an orchid show that day.

Secondly, we went to Our Lady of Victory, National Shrine, which is just down the street from the Gardens. Both of these facilities were built in the early 20th century, and are kept up very nicely. People come from around the world to visit and tour Father Baker’s Basilica.

So please, take a moment to “smell the roses” or in this case, “view the orchids”.
