You know the saying, "April showers bring may flowers." It's an old adage that rang true in Elkhart Saturday as the Wellfield Botanic Gardens hosted its Spring Marketplace.
Tulips, tunes and treasures filled the minds of those attending. Event-goers strolled around the lake, and various venders set up shop under tents to promote the latest in garden products and services.
Organizations like the Elkhart Art League also provided special activities for kids. And for many families the nice weather just added to their great day.
“It is so nice,” said Jill Replogle who attended the event. “It's not too hot, just a little overcast. The breeze makes it feel wonderful out here. It's great to see the sun shine again.”
“Enjoy a little bit of the weather, get the baby outside after the winter and try to get some landscaping ideas,” says Tad Replogle.
Saturday's marketplace was the gardens' first big event of the spring and summer season.
