Maryland Home and Garden Show

The Maryland Home and Garden Show offers a beautiful and inspiring look at spring. Companies showcased their talents through amazing displays incorporating the “Symphony of Spring” theme. On Friday night, I attended a preview event to benefit Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake.

What a wonderful way to visit the gorgeous gardens in a relaxed atmosphere. Many company representatives were available to explain their garden and how it reflected the musical theme. Guests enjoyed relaxing music from a string quartet and other musicians while sampling crab cakes and other local specialties.


My dear friend and I loved the creative gardens and each had our own personal favorite. Can you guess which one we love the most?


This is the backyard of champions. Complete with food and bar area, I envision a fabulous party here!


Almost Disney-esque, this whimsical water feature just begs to be touched! Attendees of all ages loved walking under the water and dared to break the stream of water.

Every garden offers a unique refuge from daily life. In many gardens, it was hard to remember that we were in a building and were not actually outside in a tranquil garden.


Isn't this the best? Luckily no one ended up in the water!


Beautiful copper tubing makes a beautiful tree. Water gently fell from the copper leaves into the pond.



Hundreds of local home improvement exhibits offer everything from mosquito extermination to swimming pools. Many exhibits offer special show prices and exclusive items. A wide variety of flowers, greens, and d├ęcor for the home and garden is also available for purchase. Convenient shuttles transport attendees between buildings and parking areas. Food and drinks are available at a food court area. My minnies highly recommend the strawberry smoothie that is served with a pretty umbrella and sunglasses pin.

Attend the Home and Garden Show at the Timonium Fairgrounds next weekend, March 12 and 13. Purchase tickets in advance to save time in line at the door. Click here for more information.

I'm thrilled at the idea of spring!
