FITCHBURG -- Spring has finally come to Massachusetts -- and to the Fitchburg Art Museum.
For the 20th year, visitors to Art in Bloom this weekend can look at the artwork in the museum alongside flower interpretations created by local residents.
Near Yasumasa Morimura's painting of Frida Kahlo is a pedestal with flowers arranged similarly to the ones that appear around Kahlo's head. By Mohamad Hafez's sculpture of ruins emerging from a suitcase are flowers poking out of a pot that appears to be at a similar level of decay.
The event opened Thursday with "Hidden Treasures," a tour specifically designed for patients with dementia and their caregivers.
"We try to activate long-term memory," said Ann Descoteaux, director of docents at the Fitchburg Art Museum.

2018 'All-America' flowers, veggies to consider for spring (photos)
CLEVELAND, Ohio - Planting season is upon us, and chances are flower and vegetable gardeners are flipping through catalogs and website hopping, checking out new varieties.
As usual, there's a slew of them, bred to have richer color, bloom earlier, bloom longer, have better flavor, have better disease-resistance, improved drought-resistance and other enhancements.
"One of the things that breeders continue to work on is earlier maturity," says Diane Blazek. "If you can get a tomato a week earlier than when you traditionally have, than chances are you're going to want that variety. The same can be said about getting sweeter corn."
Blazek is executive director of All-America Selections. Since 1932, AAS has teamed up with experienced trial managers around the country, who trial new plants and report their findings to AAS. AAS then announces the plants that have collectively been found to be the cream of the crop, so to speak.
"The breeders decide which of their new plants they want to be tested," said Blazek, who also is executive director of the AAS affiliate National Gar... May 24, 2018
15 Flowers that Rebuff Hummingbirds
Blooms that do not appeal to hummingbirds include:
CrocusesDaffodilsDianthusesForget-me-notsGardeniasIrisesLilacsLilies of the valleyMarigoldsOriental liliesPeoniesRosesSunflowersSweet peasTulips
All Flowers Can Be Useful
While different flowers may not be as useful as a nectar food source, these tiny birds may still use unappetizing flowers as favorite perches to rest on or to survey their territory, particularly if feeders or nectar-rich flowers are nearby. Hummingbirds may also nest in thick floral shrubbery that provides adequate shelter and protection from predators, even if the flowers themselves do not offer nectar. Many plants offer insects, which are an essential protein in a hummingbird's diet, as well as spider webs for nesting material. The colors of different flowers can catch hummingbirds' attention and attract them to a yard, where they can then discover other, more suitable flowers, feeding areas, and nesting sites.
If a yard has flowerbeds filled with inappropriate types of flowers, it doesn't matter how beautiful the bed may be or how lush the flowers; hummingbirds just aren't interested. Fortunately, it's easy to replace flowers in order to attract more hummingbirds without destroying the integrity of established flower beds.
Ideas to attract hummingbirds:
Watters Aqua Boost Crystals reduces water needs of flowering plants and keeps nectar flowing in your hummers' favorite plants. Especially valuable for raised beds and container gardens.
When an established flower or shrub dies, replace it with bloomers that appeal to hummingbirds.
Expand flowerbeds to include hummingbird-friendly flowers as borders or edging.
Fill in bare spots with tall hummingbird-loved flowers.
Add hummingbird feeders to flower beds to provide convenient food stations for the birds. This also will keep bird droppings out of traffic areas.
Add new flowerbeds, containers, and/or hanging pots with flowers hummingbirds can't resist.
Plant trees for hummingbirds that are attractive for nesting. I regularly find hummingbird nests in my Bradford Pear and Prescott Blaze Maple.
Flowers that are unsuitable for hummingbirds, may be enjoyable to other birds, attracting them to make use of your less hummingbird-friendly flowers. The yards most attractive to hummers include a range of flowers to meet all birds' needs, as well as other trees, shrubs, and vines that can provide food, shelter, and nesting sites for all types of birds.
OK, enough of the bad plants for hummingbirds here's a link to plants hummingbirds find irresistible:
