Craving spring? RI Flower Show opens next week!

Need an early dose of spring?  Craving color and fragrance with a large dollop of gardening inspiration?  I suggest a ride next week to Providence, Rhode Island to visit the “Gardening with Heart” Flower Show.  Beginning Thursday, Feb. 24th, this four-day show offers winter-weary folks, like me, 28 gardens to admire and more.  And the gardens are inspired by a movie, song or novel.  How novel!   And for less than $20 a ticket, this looks like it will be worth the price of admission.  I’m heading there next Friday.  I’ll write about the highlights when I return. For more information, visit
