Gerrit Keegstra and Keriann Delege show off two spring baskets already blooming at Riverside Gardens. The greenhouses are full of all varieties of plants and hanging baskets crowd the rafters overhead as Riverside Gardens prepares for their annual opening May 8.

Spring fever

With kids on spring break and the sun slowly warming the air, the community is warming up and beginning to stir with spring activity.

Kahli, 9, and his four-year-old little brother Ben, enjoy an afternoon at the park last Tuesday. Lots of families and kids have been outside enjoying the sunny weather that has graced Houston over the Spring Break.

Visiting Houston from Burns Lake, Danielle, Tyler, five year old Alyssa, and six year olds Keelan and Kendra enjoy a short picnic in Steelhead Park. The group enjoyed their picnic dinner warmed by the spring sunshine and surrounded by melting snow.
