Do you ever have moments when the winter blues creep in? At this time of year when the sun still sets early, when there are stretches of days with rain, snow, and cooler weather, and the landscape can look bare, it is important to be on the lookout for things to do that will brighten you spirits. We have just the event for you so mark your calendars for February 27 – March 1, 2015 because the Vermont Flower Show is coming!
The 2015 Vermont Flower Show will be a spectacular three days where you will be surrounded by the beauty of spring—a welcome sight in the middle of winter. This incredible flower show, titled this year as “Spring Reflections,” is put on by Green Works, Vermont Nursery & Landscape Association. It will all take place at the Champlain Valley Exposition in Essex Junction, VT. This is just about an hour from Swift House Inn and for guests staying with us for the weekend, this event will be well worth the drive for the day for those looking for something fun to do and/or get some fantastic spring planting and landscaping ideas.
There will be nearly 100 gardening vendors to visit, educational workshops and seminars, a bookstore, cooking demonstrations, family entertainment, a Vermont specialty food and wine room (we love this idea!), an auction, and Vermont Certified Horticulturalists available to answer any questions you may have.
Dates: February 27-March 1, 2015
Times: Fri/Sat open 10am – 6pm, Sun open 10am – 4pm
Cost: $15/adults, $12/seniors, $3/kids (3-17). Three-day pass is $30; two-day pass is $22
