Winter is great but by the time January rolls around, everyone is thoroughly disgusted with wet snow, dirty slush, and chilly winds. Instead of being wet and cold, we dream of strolling in a lush, flower-filled garden on soft grass with perfumed breezes wafting by. The good news is that winter is followed by spring, and spring brings beautiful flowers and lush gardens to reality. Of course every city has beautiful gardens and with so many beautiful gardens all over the country, you can easily find a gorgeous garden close by to relax in.
Local gardens are great, but we've listed a few unique gardens that are our personal favorites and you should visit if you are in the designated city. Most of the gardens hold regular plant shows, exhibitions, and sales all through the year. For example, the Longwood Gardens hosts workshops for amateur gardeners and children all through the year while the Denver Botanic Gardens is famous for its Blossoms of Light Festival in Dec-Jan.
However, the actual event schedule does tend to vary every year. Make sure you check the website of each individual garden before you plan your trip and itinerary. Below is our pick of America's 10 most beautiful botanical gardens to see flowers blooming this Spring.
