Rites of Spring: The Boston Flower Show

One of our traditional rites of early Spring here in New England is the venerable Boston Flower Show going on right now.  And given the winter we’ve had, this is just what I need and I will be there this afternoon, just soaking it all up!

I’m admittedly not a gardener myself – but the smell of fresh dirt, foliage and flowers will be heaven. 
Highlights of the show include:

• Garden Marketplace: Hundreds of retail vendors feature thousands
of plants, garden tools and furnishings, landscape services, botanical
décor and floral themed gifts.
• The Birds & the Bees: Experts will be demonstrating how to raise
chickens and keep bees – two of the fastest growing environmental
• From Garden to Gourmet: Local chefs teach how to grow, use and
preserve produce and herbs for year-round enjoyment and nutrition.
• Floral Competitions: The annual tradition continues as the
Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts and the Massachusetts
Horticultural Society coordinate colorful competitions amongst the
region’s top amateur floral arrangers and horticulturists, all set to the
show theme.
• Ask the Experts: Master Gardeners will be on hand to help with
vexing garden issues from soil typing to insect treatments.
• Little Sprouts Kids Corner: Children’s activities

Have a great weekend everyone!
