Hey all Connecticut gardeners, this weekend is your chance to get a taste of spring at the 29th Annual Connecticut Flower and Garden Show. It's held at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford through Sunday February 21. I spent a day there, accompanied by my very accommodating husband, and my wanders through the various displays gave me just the mood lift winter weary gardeners need about now.
