Today is the first day of spring, and Lewis Ginter Ginter Botanical Garden has A Million Blooms waiting for you. The cherry blossoms (just like the ones in D.C., but closer!) are at their peak, and other flowers including daffodils and tulips are brightening the landscape. The next several weeks will be primetime for the spring-blooming bulb displays. Plan your visit soon and follow the Garden’s social media for bloom alerts to make sure you don’t miss out.

This weekend is a chance to see hundreds of prize-worthy daffodils at the Virginia Daffodil Society Show in the Kelly Education Center (included with Garden admission). Check out the winners and talk with expert growers on Saturday, March 23 from 2-5 p.m. and Sunday, March 24 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

For houseplant lovers, the RVA Tropical and Exotic Plants “Plant Swap” is Sunday, March 31 from 1-4 p.m. in the Kelly Education Center. The event is free and open to the public; Garden admission is required to enter the Garden.

A Million Blooms is the kick-off of the Garden’s Flourish: 40 Years & Growing anniversary activities. A helpful checklist of The Top 40 Things to Do at the Garden includes some “springtime-only” opportunities.
