The capital city is starting to show some signs of spring.
The 35th annual Connecticut Flower & Garden Show opens on Thursday at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford and continues all weekend.
"I'm getting ready to think about spring,” show attendee Jane Gentile, of Niantic, said. “I was out looking at my garden and starting to put the fertilizers in and stuff now, it's time."
This year’s there is "In the Spotlight” and shows creative ideas for homeowners as well as apartment and condo dwellers.
There are more than 300 booths. Professionals set-up show stopping displays highlighting everything from patio furniture to flowers, plants and even pianos.
"The pollinators, I think, are winning out this year and organics and natives,” Kristie Gonsalves, who is the event producer, said. “It's growing more and more every year."
The event features more than an acre of gardens in full bloom, created by professional landscape designers and nonprofit organizations from across Connecticut.
"It's happy. It's bright," Gentile said. "It makes me feel warm and fuzzy."
The show runs Thursday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Friday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
