The wonderful early spring this year in the Twin Cities has been a welcome relief after last year’s harsh winter. Fortunate as we are to be outdoors and free of snow, it’s still not the tropics.

If you’re still longing for some color and the sweet scents of summer, head to downtown to Macy’s Flower Show, and experience a bold, lush world inspired by Carnaval, the samba pulse of Rio de Janeiro, and the vibrant Amazon rainforest plants and flowers of Brasil.

Brasil: Gardens in Paradise by Bachman’s runs now through April 7, and is free to the public. A Bachman’s Master Gardener will be available each day to answer questions about the flora in the show, and provide information about what you can grow in your own backyard.
