Manito Park - Spokane, WA

When my parents were here a few weeks ago, we stopped at Manito Park in Spokane after taking my sister to the airport.  While most of the flowers weren't blooming yet, it is obviously a lovely park!

We stopped at a cute stone bench for a photo op of M with his grandparents.  He thought the bench made the perfect stage, and recruited Granddad to be the "electric bass man" for his band.

The greenhouse had beautiful blooms and was a nice warm retreat on the gray day!  I think it was baby J's favorite spot - he loved the warmth.  There were also a couple of men who found a nice bench on which to sit and play a game of chess.  A pretty good spot to enjoy the blooms!

I'd never seen a climbing onion before!  Anyone know how they taste?

We really only explored a small portion of the park.  On our way out, we stopped by this pond, where M made friends with Mr. and Mrs. Mallard.  We've been reading a lot of Robert McCloskey these days, so he was thrilled to meet the stars of one of his favorite books.

You're lovely, Manito.  We'll be back to keep exploring!
