Spring keeps teasing us. We get some mild temperatures, then the ground is coated with frost.

Still, we are seeing snowdrops and crocuses, which are delightful. Pretty soon the hyacinth and daffodil buds will burst open.

Until then, take a look at these gorgeous–and clever– entries from the flower show at Plantasia in 2019. (I know it’s not as good as being able to go to Plantasia this year, but I hope it helps a bit.)

The 2019 Plantasia theme was “Plantasia in Paradise.”

The flower show was organized by the Eighth District Garden Clubs.
