The Central Ohio Home and Garden Show is going on
now and the theme is "Hooray For Hollywood".
I was so exited because it was my first time to take in the
Garden Show in Columbus, Ohio and I was not disappointed.
The creativity of nursery and landscape designers was amazing
in their displaying of plant materials and landscaping to
highlight the themes was wonderful.
The different Hollywood shows represented were:
Tombstone, Ratatoulle,Terminator 2, Notting Hill, Under the
Tuscan Sun, Herbie the Love Bug, Jurassic Park, Cast Away,
Mary Poppins, Lord of the Rings, Crouching Tiger-Hidden Dragon,
Raiders of the Lost Ark, Mamma Mia, Hollywood at Home, and
The Secret Garden.
The displays were in the dark and were back lite in various was
to make one think they were having a primer night,
so some of the pictures may not be the best.
Today I will share some pictures of "Lord Of The Rings".
Japanese Maples were mixed in among many of the scenes
and Spring flowers were used in abundance along with shade
The house of Bilbo Baggins built into the hillside at Bag End in
the Shire. Spruce trees provide protection from the Winter
winds for white flowering dogwoods and Willows line the path to
the home. Blooming Azaleas and Rhododendron are a welcome
sight after a long, cold winter. Tulips add splashes of color.
Stone walls and paver paths invite you in while Bilbo greets
you welcome from the window.
The Lord of the Rings display was created by Oakland Nurseries
and was brilliant.
The Home and Garden Show is at the Expo Center in Columbus,
Ohio and runs from February 28th through Sunday March 8th.
