Here we are. It was so good to see Julia and Greg again. A year is way to long.

Here is Cliff calming the crying babies. I didn't get a photo of them before he started playing to them. It was instantaneous silence. The mom and dad were so thrilled. The babies were mesmerized.

This was such a fun booth. They love their cactus and other succulents. What a pleasure it was visiting with the owners.

Thank You! for the photos and comments, BUT did you buy anything? Lynn? Julia? Greg?
I liked the photo of the four of you all and the last photo of Julia's of the succulent planting with the echeverias/sedum/grass. Smiling
Greg, you look good in the shirt. Did anybody think you had a booth at the show?

I did not buy anything. I just got orders from Wild Ginger Farm and Edelweiss, so I had to be good at the Home and Garden Show.
They really didn't have but a few plant vendors at this show.

But let me tell you what I found out about the show in Canby that all of us will be going to.
Ers (Edelweiss) said that it is most likely the largest gathering of nurseries and plant sales in the United States. Hurray! Hurray!

This was such a cozy garden sitting area. Don't expect something like this at my place when you come. Although I would love to have it.

I found the blooms of this Scillia peruviana beautiful and interesting.

Chris, Yes I grow quite a few hellebore as I love them too. They are just starting to bloom around here. Now if the rain would stop I could go get a few pictures. The hellebore at this show were gorgeous.

Funny story about this show. *Blush* Portland puts on a few of these shows and as soon as we drove into the parking lot I new this was not the one I went to last year. It was a lovely show but more on hardscapes and home items. Hence the title Home and Garden and Not Garden and Patio. The one next weekend is the one I wanted to go to. In my defense the web site of this show had a picture of one of last years garden in the upper left corner. *Blush* Oh well, I will investigate the web sites extensively next year. It was good to see Lynn and Cliff and Greg. I will not be driving 4 hours next weekend to see the show but looking forward to the Canby day. It sounds so exciting.

I bought 3 succulents. I will get a picture later today.

Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Bev you are so funny. It is a blown glass frog house.

Julia, what sitting?

I find it difficult to understand how something alive can have skin with such an intense blue color.

Interesting, Greg, that mini delosperma. Which is it? It's hard to find a delo that stays small in leaf and height.
