Flowers in Leesburg

Spring is here—as of March 20th.

And this weekend, April 16th and 17th, Leesburg has it’s annual Flower and Garden Show:

Historic Downtown Leesburg will once again be in full bloom as lush landscapes and gorgeous gardens fill the streets. On April 16 and 17, 2011, over 130 vendors will be on display, featuring landscape designs, gardening supplies, outdoor living items, plants, flowers, herbs and so much more! Stroll the streets and take in the sights and sounds of springtime.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
