Bangor Garden Show

It smelled like daffodils.

The annual Bangor Garden Show was a sweet reprieve from what has been an arduously long winter season. I know, it is spring, but even as the first day of the show opened, a cold rain turned into snow.

The displays were refreshing, and I especially liked seeing green grass.

The biggest treat, however, had to come at the University of Maine Cooperative Extension booth where they had tomato plants. I rubbed a couple of leaves and was transported to the scent of my August vegetable garden.

Rumor has it the temperatures will reach the 50s this week.

And I spotted a crocus ready to bloom in a wee patch of open ground in my front perennial bed.

Think sunshine.

As always, I love the way you transport us to the garden. I can almost smell the tomato leaves. Brava!
