This is garden show number two for this year. I love what all the local business people do to put on this show. Weather played a big part on setting up this years show. It has been a brutal winter and challenging growers with greenhouses. Fuel bills have been horrendous. I, as a visitor, want you to know your efforts are much appreciated. I always see things that are new. It keeps us abreast with what is being developed to make the things we do easier and better.
There was a lot of hardscape. There was garden art, mulch, and of course plants. A hydroponic planter took my eye,. It is used for year around gardening. A fresh salad everyday.
I bought a bonsais "Zelkova" that I placed in my south window. Perfect placement for sun exposure . I also purchased a cute red hanging planter that I filled with Tillandsia.The Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory is always a favorite. of mine .Great plants at a good value. Shopped at the " Bee Hive" They had a nice display of honey, lotions, creams, soaps, and all things made with bee derivatives.

The Master Gardeners had their usual booth with seeds and fielded questions about gardening. The Orchid Society had a fine display.
From the garden part of the show, we moved to the home part of the show. We sampled salsa, beef stick. and a slush made with wine. Now we can have a party. There are a lot of new products to be had for the home. An air purifier got my attention. I need to think about that.
They had educational seminars that I did not get to attend. It was reported to me, they were well attended.
All in all , it was another successful show .
