Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day so it turned out to be a fantastic day to attend the Central Ohio Home and Garden Show.
My daughter and I both thought it was a much better show this year than in the previous two years.
So we were hit with the heady fragrance of loads of hyacinth blooms as we entered.
In this posting I will show the bigger display areas and show some of the beautiful flowers and plants in future postings.
And if you have ever been to the Franklin Park Conservatory for a visit you know that it has beautiful glass art pieces by Chihuly throughout its rooms. So what would a display about the Franklin Park Conservatory be with out some Chihuly glass being present within it.
This year the garden displays were all together in the center and the vendors were outside around the displays. We both really liked this change since the vendors tend to clutter up some of the garden displays. So kudos to the organizers for arranging the garden displays in this fashion this year.
One thing I did miss this year was the large plant, bulb and seed vendors that were always present at the shows. I usually picked up a few packets of seeds and caladium bulbs or garden decor pieces every year but this year these plant and garden decor vendors were absent. This is the first year that I have came back home without some trinket or plant from a visit to the show.
I would have loved to have drug this home behind the car though.
What a wonderful potting shed. I loved the windows at the top of the roof. Put in some skylights at the back of the roof and we would be good to go. I could live in that. LOL!
It was a delightful show and we both enjoyed our visit yesterday.
If you get a chance to attend it will be worth your trip to see it this week. The final day is Sunday.
I will show off some of the lovely spring flowers in future posting later.
