Here's a chance to see museum's 'Art in Bloom'

Just like spring flowers, it’s time for “Art in Bloom.”

The city’s Council on Aging is planning a trip to an exhibit with that title at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston on April 28.

“Art in Bloom” is an annual exhibit at the museum. This festival of flowers event brings together dozens of New England garden clubs and professional designers to create floral displays interpreting art from the museum’s collection.

Tickets are $55, including a private guided tour.
