I hope everyone had a good weekend. Such a tragic end to the week with so many tornadoes destroying property and taking lives.
Keep these people in your prayers and give aid where you can.
Sunday was the last day for the Central Ohio Home & Garden Show and from all reports it was a success. Although there were a few things I missed seeing that were not at the show this year I thought it was laid out better and the displays were nicer than the two previous years.
This year I saw more Hellebores included in the displays than in previous years.
With one of the displays being of the Franklin Park Conservatory their display was made up of many tropical or warmer zoned plants.
I know nothing about tropical plants and the flower below has me stumped. I do not know what these two blooms were but they were lovely.
My daughter could smell a flower at this display that just smelled terrible and almost made her sick but I do not know whether it was from this bloom or another tropical plant on display. Anyone know what plant these two blooms are from?
Update: Meet Medinilla magnifica. Thank you Andrea for identifying my unknown bloom. A great name for a beautiful flower.
Since this posting is getting a little long I will show some of the trees and shrubs in another posting.
Winter has returned here with snow flurries yesterday and this morning to show us it is still the boss and still here for a while yet.
Everyone have a safe and wonderful week.
