The folks at the show were also very welcoming and I had a great turnout for both my lecture and the subsequent book signing. The enthusiasm of gardeners is so contagious and I may have accidentally bought more seed from the Hudson Valley Seed Library.. Opps! :) I also found an herb seed company that sold gourd seeds and bought some cannonball gourds and long dipper gourds, two that I haven't grown before.
So, without further ado, here are some images from my Boston adventure:
|I didn't find a Hobbit, but I would love one of these hideaways in my garden, as well|
as the tower house in the background. So fun!
|I enjoyed the marketplace at the Boston Flower Show.|
Check out these eye-catching topiaries! I loved this display!
|May have accidentally bought some gourd seeds. Great varieties!|
|Stunning garden.. soothing sound of water and vibrant geraniums!|
|From square (above photo) to round.. so many different types of designs.|
These spring flowering trees looked and smelled good..
|There were a bunch of mini street gardens - thought this one stood out!|
|Must have this pergola! On either side were cages with exotic birds. The gazing pool|
ran the entire length of the pergola. A dream garden.
|6-foot tall garden sculptures crafted from wire. They reminded me|
of giant alliums.. Wish I was handy and could make something like this!
|Fothergilla.. an underused spring blooming shrub. Simply gorgeous!|
|Moss rocks - fun and funky! Great for an indoor garden or shaded patio.|
|Quite the fancy hat!|
|Another floral hat..|
|Opps! More seeds.. These art packets are seriously decorative. Plus, fantastic|
varieties of heirloom veggies.
|Really great seed packets.|
|And more! I could have snapped photos of each one!|
|I really wanted to sit on these rounded pillows..|
|Such a tidy looking pathway. Just like my garden. ha ha..|
|Too bad we weren't allowed to walk on the bridge.. it looked so inviting!|
|How many reasons do you need??|
|Another water feature and sitting area, but lovely.|
|Look Ma! It's my book!|
