There's a bus trip to the Hartford Flower Show leaving Litchfield on the 22nd...$21 for bus & admission...want to go if I can find someone to let my dog out around 1:00...hoping my brother can do that.
Went to the Connecticut show today and was somewhat disappointed to miss some favorite vendors. Seems to me there were fewer landscape displays. I never have been a fan of the cut flower competitive displays, so I cannot criticize. Seems there were fewer real vendors, that is, related to gardening as opposed to hats, scarves, dresses, soap and jewelry.
Still lots of good landscape and gardening ideas and soil testing and extension services help.
flowAjen, I guess you picked up on my disappointment also. For me it was almost 80 miles away. I don't think I'll go next year either.
I hope you get to go the Philly show if it is not too far away. Philly is 2.25 hours for me (if there is no traffic), and I'm getting too old to drive and not be too exhausted to walk the show. I used to be able to go to Philadelphia, leaving at 5:20 a.m. and get back by 10:30 a.m., but those days are past.
