Spring Flowers at the Habberstad House

Flowers abound here. Enjoy a virtual walk around the Habberstad House and see our spring flowers. It has been a cool week here in Lanesboro, with a potential frost tonight. The recent rains have provided much-needed moisture for a promising spring bonanza of blooms.

Guests Enjoy the Flowers and Gardens

We don’t have any of our annuals planted yet or our baskets or pots set out. But our perennials have not disappointed our visitors, with a wealth of colors and blossoms throughout the yard. Stone and brick paths lead visitors through the gardens.

Blues, yellows, purples and pink blossoms can be found along with luscious greenery. Thanks to our son, Nathan, for taking these photos for us.
