John’s mom visited from New Jersey in mid-March. The weather was still too wintery to do an outside activity so we brought Spring to us – indoors at the Boston Flower and Garden Show!
The theme this year was Seeds of Change so all of the displays showed how local gardeners and green thumbs alike are using new plants and gardening methods show off their skills in an ecologically mindful way.
We had never been to the Boston Flower Show despite this being their 12th year. John clearly had fun!
There were so many specialized exhibits. Just really creative and amazing creations. I definitely left feeling super inspired.
I’m kind of obsessed with these zen rock gardens.
All of the concentrated lush greenery reminded me of the Pacific Northwest. I can’t wait to go back in May!
This show was a fabulous reminder that Spring is just around the corner. Good timing!
The bonsais were really exquisite.
Can you believe these floral hats? I cannot believe how talented the artists were here!
I saved the best for last. Look at this amazing Lord of the Rings miniature shadowbox. It might have been my favorite thing at the whole show.
I’m so glad we went to the Boston Flower and Garden show! It was pretty crowded and I wish there was more to see (I could look at this stuff all day long!) but it was so worth it. I’d definitely go back next year!
how long does the flower and garden show run for and is it kid friendly? i’m heading back to boston next weekend and definitely want to check it out especially because i LOVE lotr
It only ran from March 13-17th. Also it’s not very kid friendly – most of the exhibits explicitly say don’t touch. Sorry!
