Shows & Events
That's the theme of this year's Festival of Flowers at the Huntsville-Madison County Botanical Garden in Huntsville, Alabama, which goes on for the month of April. Millions of tulips dance among the dogwoods, and on weekends there's gentle, live music every afternoon. Many special activities crowd the calendar, which is posted at http://www.hsvbg.org/flowerfest.htm. Admission is free to members, $10 to non-members, with senior and student discounts available.
