This Wednesday, May 15th, people all over the Commonwealth will get busy planting something beautiful in every city and town. Come join in!
It’s all part of Plant Something MA, a joint project of the Massachusetts Flower Growers Association and the Massachusetts Nursery and Landscape Association. The goal is to have a public planting across the state and encourage residents to plant something – anything!
As Lady Bird Johnson once said,
“Where flowers bloom so does hope.”
So get yourself to a local garden center, find some fabulous flowers and then get out your gardening gloves! My plan is to use an old pair of rain boots as my containers and put in calla lilies and ivy. My inspiration comes from a fun planting (pictured right) I saw at the 2012 Boston Flower Show.
I’ll post pictures of what I plant. If you plant, please send your photos so we can all see what you did!
