The folks at Costa Farms in Miami really know how to grab your attention. On March 21st, a 30 truck caravan filled with show-stopping Sun Parasol mandevilla plants left Costa's farm headed to retailers throughout the country to kick-off the first day of spring. The event began with music from a local marching band, a ribbon cutting ceremony with local officials and hot air balloon. Too bad I couldn't be there to enjoy all the fun. Maybe next year!
Check out the spring kick-off here. It was a beautiful day!
