A perennial taste of spring

If you’re craving a little taste of spring and those bulbs you bought off the Internet aren’t quite doing it for you, hold out just a little longer for this year’s Flower and Garden Show. According to the Massachusetts Horticulture Society, the show has been in existence for over 100 years and the first shows were mostly for fruit, then came vegetables, and finally by the late 1830s flowers became the focus. — Thea Breite and Lisa Tuite
