The Portland Flower Show

Today the team traveled to the Portland Flower Show for a much-needed spring preview. If you’re looking for something to do this weekend with your family, the show is definitely worth the trip. CP#1 and #2 planted Scarlett Runner Beans, pretended to roast marshmallows and met an anonymous, but humorous charcoal artist who quickly sketched their picture. And we loved exploring the show’s imaginative exhibits, which featured everything from sweet fairy houses to cascading waterfalls.

Here are a few highlights:

CP#2 tries on a gardening hat from Portland’s Asia West

Beautiful blooms from one of the show’s many vendors

“Gulliver’s Garden” features a tiny farming village

A sea of origami birds can be found at the “Mystic Island” exhibit

Fun pinwheel flowers from Kennebooks

CP#1 plants with a volunteer from the Maine Cooperative Extension

Sweet infant and toddler hats made in Buxton by Bonnie Hawke

Butterflies made by young visitors to the show
