PEPPERELL -- Fresh and spectacular floral displays delighted library patrons again this year at the third annual "Art in Bloom" on April 17-19.

The Friends of the Lawrence Library and the Pepperell Garden Club co-sponsored this event, during library hours.

This splendid, spring celebration highlights artwork from the library collection and from previous Art Gallery shows that were on display alongside unique arrangements created by the designers at local florists: Bronze Bell, Country Florist, Lavender and Rose of Sharon at Bloom Hill, as well as members of the Pepperell Garden Club.

A very welcoming sight at this time of year, the designers created eye-popping, colorful arrangements that were inspired by the chosen artwork.

Artists Nita Casey of the Gingerbread Art Gallery and Karen Tarr's artworks were also selected.
