It's that time again!

If you're a garden nut, like me, you know I am referring to that very first garden tour of the year! And with the warm winter we've had in New Jersey, I was even more anxious than usual. The theme was Movie Classics. Best in Show went to, of course, Gone with the Wind.

Sweeping fields of tulips and daffodils...a feast for the eye!

This pretty water garden represented Swiss Family Robinson

An unusual chocolately-shade of anthurium

Keeping it simple, yet elegant, is the art of ikebana

The Wizard of Oz showcased some unusual plants.


Lovely white hellebores


Back to the yellow brick road garden...no identification on this prickly plant

Another bloom I'm not familiar with, but, it's from the orchid family...anyone?


The fragrance of this witch hazel was intoxicating!

Miniature roses making a huge impact!

Next road trip? The Philadelphia Flower Show! The theme will be the tropical paradise of Hawaii...my favorite! Anyone else going...???

  1. Hi Lynn! What a wonderful time of the year when the garden shows are making their rounds. They feed our flower starved senses and make us more anxious too. LOL! What a wonderful theme for the show. I love the Swiss Family Robinson display. Those are some unusual plants too. I do not have a clue as usual of what they are. Glad to see you posting again.

  3. I just went to our garden show on Friday, and as usual it was a feast for the eyes! Love it! Hey Lynn, I just noticed you have a link to my blog on your blogroll but could you do me a favor and update it to my current blog address? That one is no longer valid, long story. Thanks!

  4. The grassy plant with the pink bracts is Billbergia nutans. A bromeliad, not an orchid. A traditional passalong houseplant, vigorous and undemanding.
