It’s that time of year to start thinking about flowers for the Bed and Breakfast…I keep telling myself this as I look out back here in Lancaster County at the last of the snow slowly melting away. It seems that this year for some reason or other I just cannot wait to get out into the yard.
Each Spring Lancaster County seems to come to life
with color. The first of the plants to go out are the pansies. All
those fancy colors seem to brighten the grey early Spring mornings. And
from there, it continues till the fall.
If you can't find what
you are looking for in Lancaster County in the way of flowers, then
perhaps you just may not need it! The varieties are endless, the colors
are many and the beauty is beyond your dreams. The countryside of
Lancaster County is dotted with greenhouses and nurseries. The choices
are many and I find myself having to go to all of them in search of the
elusive Himalayan Blue Poppy. I still have not found it!
year I hope to find it at Lancaster’s new event… the first annual
Lancaster County Flower Show. The New Holland Rec. Center will host this
annual event. With the help of the Country Gardeners of Eastern
Lancaster County, this promises to be an action-packed event for the
The show will have plenty of activities over
the course of three days. From exhibits and speakers to demos and live
music, the flower show will prove to be the "go to" event in Lancaster
County for any gardener.
The garden show is scheduled for April 15 – 18. To find out more about the show visit the website at www.lancastercountyflowershow.com Happy Planting!
