More about the flower show

There were quite a few things about the Southeastern Flower Show I really liked. I can't imagine that anyone who likes gardening couldn't find something to like.

I loved the small terrariums. This was my favorite.

This was a front door design I liked from an Atlanta Garden Club. I love the decorative tree frog.

I think it is such a great idea to put herbs into landscaping beds.

The aquaponics were fascinating and I love the title, Farm in a Box. I plan to look into this. It would be wonderful to grow a garden in my basement.

This looked much prettier for real than in a photo. A very pretty dish garden.

The exhibits were a little scarce for the entire southeast and flower exhibits like these can be a bit disappointing after being on display for several days -- kind of wilty.

I did like the blooming apple trees with apples underneath -- at least I think they were apple trees. The forced blooms and red apples made for a pretty display.

I loved this grill featured in an award-winning exhibit. This company is located in Douglasville, pretty close to where I live. If I had the money, I would love to have this outdoor cooking station -- not for me but for my husband. He does really well with a normal grill, just think what he could do with this one.

Orchids. Enough said.

This vendor is from right down the road in Peachtree City. She hand makes these pretty glass and metal art objects that would be pretty in any garden.

I signed up for newsletters from a couple of tool and garden manufacturers. I also signed up for a fertilizer newsletter and an interesting mulch company in Atlanta.

Snapdragons -- always lovely.

Water features. There were quite a few.

Calla lilies are always beautiful, too.

The vegetable and herb plants were green and beautiful.

The tomatoes in the photo above already have small green fruit.

Can you imagine having such a beautiful daffodil? This has to be the prettiest one I have ever seen. Of course daffodils are a favorite.

And this award-winning flower sculpture was really one of the prettiest arrangements. Are you as ready for spring as I am?

  1. Dear Deberah, I love your photos! That daffodil is one of the prettiest I have ever seen - looks like it has some 'rose-petal' qualities, doesn't it? Very lush!

    I appreciate your site as I don't think I'll be able to make the show this year. I've always enjoyed it and thanks to your site, I have a good overview of it. Nice coverage.

    Can't wait for spring either!
    Many thanks, Joanie
