Flower power

On Saturday we went to the Flower Show in Providence, Rhode Island. Just being in a room filled with fresh blooms, brilliant greens and landscapes created by artists was almost more than I could handle. I was ready to strip off my winter wardrobe and break out my Lily. Words simply cannot express how ready I am for SPRING. There were so many beautiful displays of gorgeous flowers and fantastic landscaping ideas. I took notes and pictures in hopes of introducing a few new scenes in our yard this year. I was also lucky enough to pick up a few treasures that I'll share with you all later.
The lighting was poor so my pictures are a tad yellow but, if you live in an area that is currently blanketed in white, it won't really matter since it's a color we haven't seen in months! :)

My favorites were the baby elephant created from plants and flowers as well as the bird bar. Their cocktails are martini glasses filled with birdseed ~ hilarious!

Just to keep me in check, we are due for a week of rain, sleet and finishing up with several inches of snow.

Oh Mother Nature, you certainly have a quirky sense of humor.

What a great way to push back the winter blues! Can't wait for spring to get here. I'm so ready to start planting my pansies!
