PHOTOS: Garden Fest sprouts out of Baker Street

Downtown was overgrown with green thumbs

Baker Street was blooming with gardeners and Mother’s Day shoppers Saturday for the 16th annual Garden Festival. The event featured 60 booths filled with flowers, vegetables and accessories. Danu DaSilva (top left) tries to make eye contact with a statue at the Garden Festival on Saturday. Barry and Bev Timpany (top right) of Wynndel’s Garden Hoe Farms came to Nelson to sell their greenery. Kingsland Farm’s Jocelyn Martens (bottom left) helps a pair of eager gardeners. Rachel Wagner (bottom right) shows off fresh eggs from Root and Vine Acres in Creston. And there were also chicks. Scroll down to see:
