What’s your favorite thing about spring?
Is it getting away from the snow & frost in favor of 60- and 70-degree weather? Buds and new growth on the trees? Hearing birds returning and singing in the morning? Starting to be able to get on the water and fish again?
I’ve been so lucky – not having a garden I’m proud of yet, I’ve gotten to enjoy the huge variety of flowers here every day at Smith & Edwards. It’s been a beautiful spring here at Smith & Edwards with the amazing flowers at the store entrance!

What’s the best time to pick up your flowers at Smith & Edwards? We start getting pansies as soon as we can, around March every year, and then you’ll find more and more flowers with a huge selection of flowers, tomatoes, trees and fruit trees, and much more by Mother’s Day.
I’ll be bringing some home to kick start my own garden this year!
