'Earthplace in Bloom' celebrates a sign of spring

The balmy break Saturday in this frigid winter caused the spirit of spring to "Bloom" at Earthplace.

The nature center hosted its annual "Earthplace in Bloom" fundraiser, where oversized paper flowers, glowing lanterns and music helped set the tone.

Singer-guitarist Chenot Keith performed for the crowd, who also was diverted by live and silent auctions, signature cocktails with names like the Honey Bee and the Spring Sparkler, wine tastings and appetizers.

"It's a breath of Spring, which we all need," declared Earthplace Board President Julia Mally. She and a team of co-chairwomen -- Donielle Hawley, Liz Falk, Jennifer Kobetitsch and Kerry Fitzgerald -- coordinated the evening.

Proceeds benefited Earthplace Nursery School and the center's educational programming.
