Spring Flower Show

There is one way to jump start spring, find a Flower Show. Chicago is not far for us so we made a trip to the 2015 Chicago Flower Garden Show at Navy Pier last week. It was a great weekend weather wise, not like now. We have three inches of snow on the ground as I speak. It usually is a good show, but this year I thought it was special. The display gardens were amazing. You could walk into the gardens and feel like you were in someones home garden. The theme focus this year was roses. It was refreshing to see tulips, flowering shrubs and trees in full bloom along with roses. pansies and lilies. Of course these flowers are not blooming in our gardens at the same time. Through trickery and magic they are able to do this transformation.

We did a little of Chicago. We had pizza, Willis (Sears ) Tower and Ed Debevic.We also had our Garden Writers meeting. It is always informative and a time to renew friendships. I attended a couple symposiums. They are always the best.
