Since I am attending at a later time this year I will be watching
for pictures from those who have attended the opening
and waiting to hear what everyone thought about the show.
Since it is also Fertilizer Friday at our Tootsie's
home at "Tootsie Time" what better way to Flaunt
Those Flowers than to show some of last years
Garden Show pictures. I just wish the weather would
have cooperated more for the big opening tomorrow.
Everyone Enjoy the Garden Show!
