Here is an excerpt from Susan Hall’s article “Portal to Spring: Garden Shows Whisk Away Winter Doldrums” for those of you who share Sam Gamgee’s love of gardening.
Need a vacation? Try the Chicago Flower and Garden Show, March 10-18, on the Navy Pier, where 12 U.S. cities will be re-created in flowers. Visitors also can escape in an antique Irish garden, a “Virtu-O-City,” and more. Children can delight in living versions of “Treasure Island” and “The Hobbit.” Seminar topics will include rooftop gardens, water gardens and gardening for people with disabilities.
