Last week's Flower and Garden Show
here so you can appreciate them. You will see what I mean. She also posted another blog yesterday about the flower show market, and I have to say she saw things I didn't even notice! Of course, she and Tom got there first thing in the morning and stayed until the end. We were with a group and were limited to just a bit more than four hours, which was enough for me.
providing a link to the show gardens, but the photo galleries are from previous years, as this show will not be over until tomorrow. (Hint: Linda's post above has many really good pictures of them.) Here's the best one I was able to get of Frodo's house.
I spent a fair amount of money and didn't buy a single flower! I bought goat cheese, a lavender-filled teddy bear, honey, and something called "water beads." When I get them properly plump, I'll post a picture. All in all, we had a great day! I've attended every year since I arrived in this part of the country, and I expect to be there next year, too. You never know what fine people you might find there.
