Boston Flower Show Inspiration

It's nice to be able to get ourselves over-the-bridge this time of year.  Our winter break is quickly coming to a close and that means all work and no play for the next six months.  So for one last hurrah, nothing could be better for this girl than some Spring-immersion and Boston Flower & Garden Show inspiration.

Very shortly we'll be re-opening our Dennis Port store for the 2017 season which means the next chance we'll get "over the bridge" will probably be at some point in early 2018.  The 2017 Boston Flower & Garden Show is so dazzling, we couldn't just keep these beautiful flower show images to ourselves.  So take a peak at our field trip to the Boston Flower Show, and if you have the time, make a trip of your own over-the-bridge before it all gets too hectic, as Cape Cod comes back to life after its long winter's nap.

Fairy House
Now this was a show-stopper.  This incredible Fairy House was made by Maine Stoneworks.  If you look closely at the picture below, you can see our favorite fairy waving to you from inside.  Look at the incredible stonework that went into creating this life-size fairy house.  It's a marvel!

And that's it! We had such a great time at the Boston Flower & Garden Show that we'll definitely see you there next year!

Hopefully Cape Cod will warm up soon so we can all get our hands dirty in the garden.  And come visit our new home and garden department, Cottage Style when we open this Spring.  We'll have lots of pretty things to decorate your home and your garden with.

What are you planning to do to in your garden this year?
