On Valentine’s Day some girls get the kind of ice that is measured in karats, but the only ice up here in Heath is the kind that makes life difficult. The walk out to the henhouse might be better made with skates than boots.
With all the ice – albeit bright now today, my thoughts turn to the New England Spring Flower Show in Boston at the Bayside Exposition Center from March 8 – 16. Flowers! Greenery! That wonderful scent of growing things. Garden Ranter Amy Stewart will be there to talk about the Global Flower Industry, and Paul Tukey of People, Places and Plants Magazine and SafeLawns will be talking about lawns. What else! Tony Aven of Plant Delights Nursery will talk about Landscaping in Drifts of One. I think that is what I do. Of course, lots of other speakers, tours, and most of all plants. You can get full information at http://www.masshort.org/. Or call 617-933-4923. This is a great show and I can’t wait.
