For the past four or five years, I’ve looked forward to the Boston Flower and Garden Show as sort of an unofficial start to spring. And given the wild winter we’ve endured, I practically counted down the days to this year’s show.
I took fewer photos than past years, mostly because I had my hands full protecting Grace from flying elbows. We didn’t make it in until Saturday (word to the wise: go during the week) and had to battle the crowds a bit, but man. It felt good to see some flowers. In the pretend outdoors.
I can’t wait until spring is really here. In the meantime, I’m dreaming up all kinds of things I want to plant and grow on our deck. My parents gave me a tomato grow bag kit for my birthday and I plan to plant a few containers of herbs, as well. While it will be nice to have more space to work with some day (I am swooning over the outdoor living spaces we saw this weekend), there really is so much you can do with a few square feet and some sunshine.
Here are a few of my favorites from the 2014 Boston Flower and Garden Show for your own spring daydreaming:
Also On Tap for Today:
- Want more flowers? Here are my Flower Show posts from 2010, 2011 and 2012… who knows where 2013 and 2014 ended up…
- Oh, good. We broke the snow record. Now please come clean off my car.
- Happy Parade Day!
What are you looking forward to this spring?
