Boston Flower Show 2016

At the last minute I was lucky enough to be given two tickets to the Boston Flower & Garden Show. Next year I'll try to plan ahead and go to the workshops and talks but I had a great time checking out the exhibits and vendors on Friday night with a friend.

This year the theme was "Nurtured by Nature" and many of the displays featured vegetables or perennial edibles like blueberries, apples, and pears.

There was also a cute "Fairy/Gnome garden" contest and the award winning carnivorous plants were on display.

I got this fabulously flattering selfie and some heirloom seed potatoes as a souvenir.
