DAVENPORT, Iowa-- Spring is still 32 days away and for some of us it can't come soon enough.

But if you got spring fever a quick trip to the Vander Veer Conservatory will surely cure it.

The conservatory kicked off their Spring Floral show filled with colorful bright flowers, green leafy trees and a crystal clear fish pond.

"It's balmy in here, it's warm, it feels a little tropical this time of year and has a bunch of beautiful plants," says Natasha Sottos, Friends of Vander Veer Director.

And it's not just one display of flowers. Workers at the conservatory will switch the flower displays every few weeks.

"As new things come into bloom we'll keep putting them in," says Sottos,"So in the weeks ahead you'll see tulips and hyacinths and other beautiful spring flowers.  It's really neat you can come back several times because it's ever changing."

The floral show opened Feb. 14 and will run until June 1. The Conservatory and greenhouses are open Tuesdays-Sunday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. (closed on Mondays). Admission is $1 for adults 16 and older, and free for anyone younger than 16. Children 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Admission is free on Tuesdays.
