INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - The Indiana Flower & Patio Show kicks off on Saturday and people we talked with are excited to spend some time thinking about spring.

From the minute you walk through the doors, you are surrounded by the sweet smells of flowers and other plants. The 9-day event is meant to inspire you to transform your own home into a personal paradise.

The florists at McNamara have created a tropical feel in one of the central parts of the West Pavilion, to make you feel like you are living the island life. Other exhibits show off patio plans that you can create in your own backyard to welcome guests and family in the warmer months.

There are local experts there who can give advice about how to customize your own ideas, plus TV stars making appearances and answering questions, like Chris Lambton from HGTV's "Going Yard" and Sara Bendrick from DIY Network's "I Hate My Yard."

Stay tuned to WTHR Sunrise on Saturday to hear more about the different features.
