Pansy Mania in Lancaster County

It’s been a long winter.  So the first windy day of 65 degrees swept me into a greenhouse oasis filled with spring.   Black Creek Greenhouse is about ten minutes from The Artist’s Inn and Gallery. There were flowers everywhere, but I knew that it was a little too early to plant anything but pansies.  No problem – there were enough varieties to keep everyone happy!    
Frilly ones!
And, my favorite – blue striped.  Don’t they remind you of seersucker material and summer?
The best part of this greenhouse is their imagination.  Every year they feature a whimsical display.  This year it’s Goldilocks!
I hope this has inspired you to grab a girlfriend or your mom and go find some pansies!
