Tulip Time-Topeka Spring Gardens Tour

Meet in Manhattan at 8:00 am or join us in Topeka at 9:00 am for a tour of the Ted Ensley Gardens at Lake Shawnee, the Old Prairie Town and Botanical Gardens, and Doran Rock Garden at Gage Park. Everyone bring his/her own sack lunch and drinks. We will leave Topeka by 3:00 pm and plan to be back in Manhattan by 4:00 pm-unless everyone wants to stay later. Since this is all outside, it is dependent on the weather.

    Sorry that this meetup did nto happen; the tulips are late this year . I have found out today that other wildflower events [not Meetups] are being delayed a week around eastern Kansas. I would like to reschedule, but will be out of town for the next three weekends. So, it would be fine if someone else would host the tulip tour or something like it.
    Hope you are able to be outdoors enjoying the wildflowers.

    Eve, I am having back pain. My father is in the hospital in western Kansas; I need to save my back for that trip, if I feel good enough travel. I hope you can reschedule this outing, it's a great idea. Rita

    I've decided not to go, as the weather has been cold until today and the tulips are probably not in full bloom yet.

    I'd go outdoors even if weather is less than ideal. Are there indoor alternatives? Tour of a large greenhouse/ nursery, the Zoo with the rainforest dome, Kansas Museum of History, remodeled State Capitol? I'll be at the 177/ I70 parking lot

      Glad you can make it, Rita. Looks as if we might just all meet at I-70/177 about 8:15. Final details coming later.

    Hi, All, I have been keeping an eye on the weather and am relieved to see that the forecast of rain for Saturday is now "cloudy" with 20% chance and a high of 62. My other concern has been whether the tulips would have started blooming. I have talked to the Parks Dept in Topeka and they said they "hope" Saturday will have lots of flowers. Just in case of bad weather or no flowers, I am working on alternatives and will let you know. I'll post our meeting place here and in Topeka in a day or so. So glad you are coming!

    Could I please get a ride from the K-177 and I70 parking lot? I will help pay for gas.

      Lisa: I'll plan to meet you at 7:45 if the plan is for us to meet in Topeka at 9:00.

      March 10, 2013

      I will be there

    Lisa and Paul, glad you worked it out to meet up and join us. We will plan to stop at the lot at K-177 and I-70 south of Manhattan - about 8:15 - so if anyone else wants to join us there, just let us know. Or we can meet you at any I-70 exit along the way to Topeka.
