Put the petal to the metal at Art in Bloom this April. Celebrating fine art and the return of the city’s blossoms, the festival pairs works from the Museum of Fine Arts’ collection with floral arrangements. Peruse the interpretations while enjoying ikebana demonstrations and outdoor walking tours or munching on light bites as you examine European paintings. On April 26, get a preview of the newly installed arrangements, or check in on April 28 for family-friendly activities during Community Day. Don’t miss the market featuring floral tea cups and garden items, plus artisans hawking accessories and table wares. Then there’s famed florist Remco van Vliet, who will be on hand for two master classes and a lecture with tips for at-home gardeners. Get a green thumb at the MFA on April 27-29. / Julia Aparicio
