Weather for the first day of the show was sunny and today it started out a little misty but the inside of the two buildings at the show is definitely spring-like. (Next week we are in Great Falls, MT and wondering exactly how we'll get there if the Cascade pass at Snoqualmie closes again - it might be a roundabout way through the snow, so we are just enjoying California weather to the fullest.)
Enjoy the photos below - all of the 2012 Show Garden creators did a marvelous job with their spaces.
|Seems you can make a fountain our of just about anything and yes, it is the front of an old vehicle.|
|A little bit of color goes a long way to enliven old found objects.|
|"Graffiti" artfully placed in the garden. It was a "double take" for us when we realized those large planters were actually trash dumpsters! Use everything and be creative in the garden.|
|Even a small outcropping of rock with a few paving stones can become a patio.|
