WESTBURY, N.Y. (WCBS 880) -- Even though some areas on Long Island received over a foot of snow this week, spring is in the air in one location.

Pinks, yellows, purples, and shades of orange surrounded WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall Thursday as she visited the Hicks Nurseries Spring Flower and Garden Show in Westbury.

“Here’s a great example where we see clusters of colors, and how that can be pleasing to the eye,” said the nurseries’ Felix Cutrone.

Cutrone said there are a number of aesthetic elements that make the flower show a sensual joy.

“Textures, flowers – make them different. Make it personal,” he said.

Cutrone said if you are green about gardening, you can soon have a green thumb with a little help from Hicks.

“We would like people to bring us pictures of the bed they’d like to redo; the front of their house; bring in their budget,” he said. “It’s their first home, or the person that’s been in the home 50 years. We make it as easy as possible.”

Cutrone said landscaping can change the look of any house.

“It can be as simple and as personal as a single planter of flowers at your front door,” he said.

Hicks Nurseries is located at 100 Jericho Turnpike in Westbury. The 2018 Spring Flower and Garden Show is open from 8 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday as well as Saturday and Sunday, and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday. Admission is free.
