Spring has sprung so here are some great events to inspire any gardener!

Mobile, Alabama, is home to the largest outdoor flower show in the Southeast.  The 18th Annual Festival of Flowers will be held March 24th-27th at 6801 Airport Boulevard, Mobile, Alabama.  This year’s theme is inspired by the children’s hymn, “All Things Bright and Beautiful.”  The Festival of Flowers boasts over 300,000 square feet of exhibits/attractions with something for everyone whether you are a foodie, a designer, or just a flower lover!  Attractions include a photography contest which focuses on garden themes, Scapes and Floral Design Exhibits which allow interior designers to display home and garden exhibits, Floral Couture (garments constructed of flowers), Blooming Cuisine Seminars, a petting zoo and a butterfly house.  And not only is this a great way to please your senses but you are also helping others as all proceeds benefit Providence Hospital’s Cardiology Department.  Check out www.festivalofflowers.com for a full list of events, times and prices.
