Driven to Spring

The Boston Flower Show is back!  There were flowers everywhere, in all kinds of arrangements and gardens.

There was also a lot of water – a pond like this one with a stone ‘lily pad’ that appeared to float on the water. The pond was surrounded by azaleas, conifers and bulbs. I may have to do a whole posting about water in fountains and streams.

There were flower arrangements like this simple vase of brilliant tulips for a table setting.

as well as  any number of big bouquets of mixed flowers and foliage,

and single color arrangements like this bouquet of white roses, snapdragons, stocks and chrysanthemums.

There were cakes made entirely of dried flowers, including hydrangea blossoms, dusty miller and roses, but for those who want a real cake for a really special occasion

there were real cakes created by any number of skilled bakers.

Looking at all these flowers was inspiring and there were flowers for sale

inside the Flower Show . . . .

just outside the Flower Show doors . . . .

at South Station and at any one of a thousand street corners.

    Show me more! I didn’t get there this year. Maybe next.

  3. Always nice to see a flower show. You had more flowers for sale then the one I went to in Toronto.

    Didn’t it make you want to fill your vehicle with all of those blossoms. I can just imagine the smell too. Wonderful.

    Tinky – there were gorgeous display gardens, and gorgeous arrangements – and a sense of humor – which is always welcome.
    Layanee – I don’t think here were quite as many display gardens as in the past, and Mass Hort was responsible for only a part of the show, but it was good to have the Boston Flowers Show back.
    Deborah – I was surprised at how many flowers and plants were available to buy.
    Lisa – It did smell wonderful and I am really happy to be home now because I am ready to start my seeds.
