Spring Preview

It's been an unusually cold winter, and now it's that time of year when everything looks dead.

Time for the annual Rhode Island Flower Show and a chance to see and smell live plants and dirt. Can you believe this garden with delphiniums in full bloom is inside the Convention Center?

This year's theme was "Gardens of the World," and two exhibits really got my attention.

One included sand sculptures of ancient Egptian designs, being sculpted live by a man dressed as an ancient Egyptian slave.

The other was a tropical jungle scene complete with waterfalls, fake thunderstorms and a jeep!
