We got 9 inches of snow on Sunday, which was very welcome as it will hopefully reduce our fire danger for at least a few weeks in the spring. And although the Loveland snow sculptors would have preferred to have the snow come earlier in the month, we’ll take it whenever we can get it.
But even in the dead of winter, it’s always spring in a greenhouse. In fact, there’s something almost magical about strolling among the plants and flowers when the out-of-doors looks like this:
So I went on Sunday to Bath Garden Center for their second annual Art in Bloom. The idea behind this art show is for floral designers to put together arrangements that “recreate the essence” of paintings by local artists. It is such a great concept and makes for a unique and beautiful display. I was so glad I went, and I'll definitely try to catch it again next year. But I will go when it opens on Friday, because floral arrangements look best when they are very fresh.
