The coming of spring also brings the return of the Springfield Museums’ annual Festival of Flowers, April 3-6, 2014.

The festival, once a mainstay of the Museums calendar, returned last year to the delight of area flower fans, and this year’s event features even more floral arrangements inspired by some of the Museums’ signature collection items.
