Photo recap of the Rhode Island Spring Flower and Garden Show

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The 24th annual Rhode Island Spring Flower and Garden Show was a four-day event held at the Rhode Island Convention Center. On Saturday, I drove to Providence to visit the show for the first time. While it is smaller in size than the Connecticut Flower and Garden Show, which runs during the same weekend, there were many display gardens and unique artisans selling their wares at the Rhode Island Convention Center. 

This year's theme was "Spring Fling," which was echoed successfully throughout the display gardens and entries submitted through the Rhode Island Horticultural Society. Below is a photo montage of some of the interesting plants and displays I came across on Saturday.

What a cool use of instruments!

An Alice in Wonderland theme was incorporated in Big Sky Landscaping's display garden.

I was totally blown away by the display setup for Phlash Photo.
This shows only one side. The other side was a photo booth area for visitors to pose in.

The Groden Network ran with the theme of "Only in Rhode Island" by
intertwining daffodils with Del's Fresh Lemonade.

Mr. Potato Head was a part of Groden Network's display vegetable garden.
I'm not aware of the connection to Rhode Island, however!

Yard Works, Inc. stole the show with their depiction of "Tea Party at Rockefeller's Garden."

Tulips played a major role in Yard Works, Inc.'s display garden.

The pastry chef side of me really enjoyed this third place finish for the
"Luscious Lime" category, submitted by Linda Lacroix of the Tiverton Garden Club.

This Christmas Cactus entered by John P. Russo of Lincoln, Rhode Island, won
first place and the Grower's Choice Award in its category.

Another first place finish for this succulent.

This floral piece submitted by Catherine Moore and
Carol Granville won an honorable mention in the "Spring Equinox - Night" category.

  1. These are looking very beautiful. So glad to have a glance at these photos. I also have been planning to attend the flower show for getting the ideas for wedding floral decorations for our special day. These shows and expos are quite useful for us. Recently attended the bridal expo at convention center and it was just so good.
