Yes it is still winter and we just got clobbered by a “big one”, but there is hope. As a harbinger of the spring that will eventually get here, it is New England flower show season. The season begins in Connecticut and Rhode Island in February and ends in Rhode Island in June. It kicks of in February with the Rhode Island Spring Flower & Garden Show and ends in June with the Newport Flower Show at Rosecliff in Newport. Along the way every state gets involved with their own flower, garden, or home and garden shows.

Following are the 2013 flower / garden shows in New England:

Connecticut Flower Shows

Maine Flower Shows

Massachusetts Flower Shows

New Hampshire Flower Shows

Rhode Island Flower Shows

A Couple of February 2012 Flower Shows

Picture of FlowersAdmittedly it has not been a difficult winter. I would understand if you didn’t know it was winter at all (especially in southern New England). But it is still nice to be reminded that bushes, lawns, and trees will grow again; and that you will soon be able to wear a tee shirt and shorts again.

There are a couple of early season flower and garden shows coming up to help get you into a spring frame of mind.

Connecticut Flower & Garden Show

The Connecticut Flower & Garden Show will be at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford from Thursday February 23 to Sunday February 26, 2012. The show will feature 12,000 square feet of competitive design and horticultural exhibits, an artisan section, educational exhibits and seminars, and over 300 vendor booths.

Rhode Island Spring Flower & Garden Show

The Rhode Island Spring Flower and Garden Show will hit the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence from Thursday February 23 to Sunday February 26, 2012. The show typically attracts over 30,000 attendees and features garden displays, demonstrations, lectures, and vendors.

Some Fun for Lilac Fans

One of the great joys of a New England spring is the profusion of flowers. One of the stars of this fleeting but beautiful period is the lilac. Long prized for their profusion of blooms and fragrance, lilacs announce spring with gusto.

For lilac fans, there are two events coming up that you may want to take in:

  1. The Arnold Arboretum Lilac Sunday on May 8, 2011 in Boston, MA
  2. The Wentworth-Coolidge Mansion Lilac Festival on May 28, 2011 in Portsmouth, NH
