I always love going to the Chicago Flower & Garden Show! The timing is just perfect to brush off the winter cobwebs and start thinking about spring.
But this year? Ah, this year it was double-y (no, make that triple-y!!!) wonderful.
As soon as Sandie and I stepped in to the Navy Pier exhibition hall . . .
we were overwhelmed (some might say downright giddy) from the smell of fresh flowers and trees. . .
and we realized how starved we were for color!
We had a wonderful day in Chicago -- filled with inspiration, education, and a bit of shopping, too. I'll share more in the blog-days ahead.
For now, let's just say that being surrounded by plants and flowers . . .
was balm for the soul!
