I enjoy gardening shows on TV. I love to see how others fix up their back yard and what they do with the space they have. Truth be told, I prefer watching to actually spending time outside gardening though.

But around this time of the year when the grass, plants, and trees begin to wake from their winter slumber I tell myself this will be the year the inside and outside of my home get a touch up.

I eventually get over it, but I like going to home and garden shows to keep the dream alive. Like the El Paso Home & Garden Show March 8-10 at the El Paso Convention Center. The annual event includes exhibits, demonstrations, and the latest products and services for those looking for inspiration and new ideas.

Ahmed Hassan of “Yard Crashers” fame will make several appearances on Saturday and Sunday, Mar. 9-10. Hassan, the original host of the DIY Network series, will host a seminar titled “Landscaping Success”.

Along with all the “H” and “G,” the kids can meet and take a pic with Curious George, check out a live Birds of Prey Show, and paint and plant, according the event website.
