Every year we look forward to the spring, not only for the warmer weather and beautiful spring flowers but because it means that the Boston Flower and Garden Show is coming to town! It is absolutely one of the highlights of our year. The show brings together garden and flower enthusiasts from all over the country to delight it the exhibits, competitions and vendors who gather there.
Emily and I made it out Friday evening to the show and were. as always, completely blown away by the beautiful plants, succulents, flowers and trees we saw. Many of which we'd never seen before!
The show dates way back to the 1800s where it originally began as an exhibition of mostly fruits with flowers only beginning to take over in the 1830's. Now you'll be able to find a wide variety of arts and crafts for sale in addition to botanicals. Our favorites included an artist who persevered butterflies in small modest frames, the New England Society of Botanical Artists, and of course the vender who had the cheddar bacon dip samples!
It is absolutely worth a visit next spring!
