SPECIAL EVENTS | Bonsai and Historic Plant Sales 

We're in the midst of that odd, yet completely welcome, mixture of spring and summer weather, and everything's blooming and thriving and making Rochester more cheerful than it was mere weeks ago. If your home or office needs the pick-me-up that the exterior world has gained, check out one of this week's plant-oriented events and take home some new flora.

George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will host its annual Historic Spring Plant Sale on Saturday, May 18, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., offering perennials and woody plants that have been grown from seeds, divisions, cuttings, and offshoots from the George Eastman House gardens. Admission is free, and the sale will be held on the lawn near the University Avenue entrance. Eastman House members have early access to the sale at 9 a.m. For more information, call 271-3361 or visit
