So here are a few of the pics we took at the show. I will start out with some pictures of the display gardens and features. The theme of this years show is Britain. So we will start with some of the Royal Jewels.

The seashells and blue thing was part of a Yellow Submarine display

Can't remember what display the Dog House was part of but it is cute.

Next a few of the Topiary.
This really cute big guy is a wonderful lion. The Echies were used as the face and it looked much better than photographed I think it was the angle of the pic to try and get the whole beast in you get more of a side view of the face. Wish I had a close up of the face to show you how good it really looked. I think someone was looking for a dress a few days ago. Can't see the bottom very well but it is a nice flirty short skirt made of several Ivies.

Oh BTW, DH Ric took most of these pictures. That is me standing in the background of the Lion picture holding the coffee cup.
These are all individual entries. Many have visible plant tags from the judging but just in case we mixed the tags with the plant beside it you might want to look them up before you take them as true ID's

No just attending. It is a huge show maybe an International Show. The small show in York that we were at last week is more my size and hopefully next year I will have a few entries.

It's a great show. Jennifer and I went a few years back.

And the Atlanta Flower show is this weekend. Anyone ever been to that one? Would it be worth going to? I'm really booked tight this week but thinking about trying to squeeze it in.
