Certain plants just have a bigger following than others. Perhpas it's shape, color, blossom time…
Saturday’s Boston Globe had a story about the annual Boston Flower and Garden Show, set for five days this past week.
The headline of the story read, “Spring flower show closing two days early following state ban on gatherings.”
The threat of coronavirus caused Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker to ban any gatherings of 250 or more people.
That, of course, meant the Flower Show might have to close.
Luckily I was able to get there Friday morning. I had volunteered to help out at the New England Hosta Society exhibit for a couple of hours.
There were very few people which meant the exhibits would not have crowds gathering around them.
I arrived about 10 a.m., the opening time, and entered with just a few other people. I walked around to take a look at the splendid displays of flowers everywhere.
This exhibit by what does qv mean on dating sites highlighted PW’s new plants for the spring. [below]
Included in the arrangement were the new Caladiums that PW now offers. The colors, in a series called ‘Heart to Heart,’ were combinations of bright red, pink, green and white. One seemed more beautiful than the next.
Though the Show closed early, I was glad I got to see at least a bit of the Boston Flower and Garden Show, and one of my favorites, Caladium.
