Look what I got today at the Connecticut Garden Show!

I also got a bat house, and a Hod from Maine Garden Products, as you may remember me raving about last year? well lobsterpot wire wood basket love is now mine!

Went to several talks, orchid care (good, very informational), meadows (no new info for me, and I doubt your average person would be convinced), Roger Swain (who was the guy on the Victory Garden on PBS, very entertaining), and also Zen/Japanese Gardens. yay nice garden slides, reminding me of East Asian Art Class…

Was not impressed by the arrangements. Garden Displays ok, but I think I need to go to a bigger city to see anything innovative.

So how’s the garden shows near you?

Phalenopsis seem to be the only ones that could be in focus

Here’s a nice Tsukubai…I still want to have one of my rocks drilled to make one, except I can’t move the rock…
