Looking For a New"" Flower Show?
It's that time of year when posts start appearing discussing the various
flower shows available in New England. . .so here's my annual "head's up"
for anyone willing to venture a few miles beyond the western Connecticut
border to Sussex, NJ, for a visit to SPRINGFEST, my favorite small garden
show held on the Sussex County Fairgrounds.
It's the perfect setting for a winter garden show, inside several huge glass
greenhouses. . .I've attended on balmy, early Spring days - and when there's
a foot of snow on the ground! Way less expensive than other shows (less
than $10), plenty of free parking, and the best darn food tent I've EVER
encountered at these kinds of shows. It is definitely NOT the Philadelphia
Flower Show - which is also coming up the first week of March - but it's
country setting lends it a charm all it's own.
Day trip, anyone?
