Every March I am in awe at the inventive ideas the horitculture staff at Olbrich Botanical Gardens come up with for their annual spring flower show. They always have to use the same space which is a bit of an awkward shape and only has one way to direct the traffic. Yet they always manage to transform it into something new and different.
This year's show is called "Furnished with Flowers" and is really two displays: beautiful furniture by local craftspeople surrounded by spring flowers. If you like containers of spring plants this particular exhibit will provide you with a wealth of ideas. There are also handouts — one for the flowers and one for the furniture — that provide pictures along with names so you can identify what you are looking at. Another memorable creation by Olbrich and one that gives us much to see and enjoy.
You can find all the details about dates and times here.

This plant stand with adjustable grow-lights got a lot of attention.
