I spy daffodils in the flower garden and pansies at the hardware store…could it really be? Yes! It seems at long last that Spring has finally sprung here in the Northeast.
As the mercury rises and the scape changes from muted shades of brown and gray to vibrant greens sprinkled with pops of bright colors from blooming flowers and trees, it’s time to get the kids outside to enjoy some warm fresh air and sunshine.
Spring flower festivals make for a fun family outing and also provide great photo ops for the kiddos so get your cameras ready and make plans to attend one of the following festivals this Spring!
- Laurel Ridge, Wigwam Road, Litchfield, CT – daffodils in bloom during April and May, everyone welcome!
- Meriden Daffodil Festival, Hubbard Park, Meriden, CT – April 27, 2013 – April 28, 2013 – see more than 600,000 daffodils in bloom!
