GardenNews.biz - Dec 29,2016 - TOWER HILL BOTANIC GARDEN - WINTER IN BLOOM
FEBRUARY 4 – MARCH 5, 2017
FIVE WEEKEND OF FLOWERS
In honor of Worcester County Horticultural Society’s 175th Anniversary this year, our floral design series invites professional and amateur designers alike to create arrangements capturing the essence of Tower Hill’s eighteen distinctive gardens.
As New England braces for some of the coldest days of the winter, Tower Hill Botanic Garden will be hosting Winter In Bloom: A Month of Flowers. Last winter, more visitors than ever discovered there is no better place in February to escape the cold weather and to be inspired than Tower Hill. Throughout the month – with activities planned each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of February – there will be expert guest speakers, hands-on workshops, live music, flower shows, displays by leading floral designers, and activities geared to all ages. The rich colors and fragrances offer stimulation for the senses not only for flower lovers, but for all those seeking a break from chilly temperatures and a reminder that spring’s beauty will return once again.
Plant and flower inspired, kid-friendly activities take center stage during February’s school vacation week offering an educational and fun day-trip that multiple generations can enjoy together. Daily vacation activities will include story walks, scavenger hunts, crafts, library programs, story time, and more.
