The 29th annual Connecticut Flower & Garden Show runs February 18 through 21, 2010 at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, Connecticut. You'll find inspiration in abundance at this expansive gardening show, which features 25 display gardens, prize-winning horticultural contest entries, free seminars and vendors selling everything from garden tools and accents to jewelry, crafts and food products.

I had the opportunity to tour the Connecticut Flower & Garden Show on opening day, and my photos will provide you with a preview of one of New England's largest flower shows. The event is truly a treat for the senses, offering nearly three acres of enticing displays and helpful on-site experts to answer your gardening questions as you take notes and make plans for a bloom-filled growing season.
