Are you missing your garden and can’t believe it’s still winter? Are you searching for an out-of-the-box activity to get yourself out of the house? I know. It’s so tempting to wait out the winter wrapped in a blanket. Curl up on the couch with a good book, and it’ll soon be time to get started on gardening tasks. Even the most introverted among us need a bit of time out, though, don’t we?
If you’re on the hunt for a fun indoor activity to do by yourself, with friends, or with kids, consider visiting a flower show.
