A Glimpse of Spring

Yesterday we decided to go to the 2008 New England Spring Flower Show in Boston. You can read about our 2007 trip here. Last year’s show seemed a little thin, but lovely. This year, there were even fewer exhibits and the ones that were presented seemed less dazzling. The theme this year is “Rhapsody in Green”; both the color and the environmental movement. Perhaps that led to designer restraint and fewer splashes of color. Also some of our old favorites such as the garden rooms and the dining tables were barely in evidence. It all seemed a bit blah and we did not experience that energizing burst of early spring we have come to expect. The show, sponsored by the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, runs through this Sunday, March 16th at the Bayside Expo Center.

Here are a few of my favorite moments from the show. Enjoy!

P.S. Blogger has been acting up lately. Tonight the entire platform seemed to disappear! I hope you’re finding Pink Granite easy to open and read.

That waterfall was lovely and I loved the moose. One day I'm going to have enough room for a metal cow in my garden

Thanks everyone!
I'm glad you liked the photos! Going through them to find the ones I wanted to post, helped me shift my focus from what was missing, to the good things that were there!

Hi Sue -
I'm relieved the problems with Blogger were with them and not my browser or computer.
