Visitors could grab some food, listen to poetry, and even be serenated by a harpist. Creativity usually has a muse. For these Artist, the area's natural setting works perfectly. "If you live in the Northwoods it'so very easy to be inspired. Because you look out doors and see all the wildlife and beauty…so that is a constant
inspiration." Trees are what give the Northwoods its beauty. But if you think there's not a lot going on here? Poet, John Bates would tell you otherwise. "Our show shows that there's a lot up here. It's really a matter of personal perception, of making this place personal to you and however you're going to do that." Said Poet, John Bates

RHINELANDER - A snow storm caught Hanson's Garden Village in Rhinelander off guard last weekend and collapsed a greenhouse. Now that spring weather is here, Hanson's is ready to move forward by making some adjustments. "We got by for 25 years doing what we were doing," said Hanson's Garden Village Co-owner Brent Hanson. Last weekend's spring snow storm set back Hanson's. "We thought we were ahead of schedule having that greenhouse nice and filled," said Hanson's Manager Beth Hanson.
"One bad storm and there you go. Things happen," said Brent. The storm collapsed a greenhouse holding thousands of plants. "For years we've gotten by with these lighter cheaper green houses," said Brent. "We'll be down a greenhouse for a little bit here," said Beth. Now Hanson's will only use sturdier and solid greenhouses so that collapses don't become a pattern.
