  2. Love your photos !!!
    I went to it for just a moment on Sunday afternoon. I quickly took a few photos and only saw a couple of the booths. Wish I could have spent the whole day. Really went to see the displays for some ideas for my yard. Had no idea there was so much there.

    1. Catherine, there are so many pictures of the display gardens already published that I decided to look at the other side of the show. By the way, my display gardens pictures are not very good. The lighting there is not perfect for our cameras.

  7. Hi Tatyana, what a garden show! Thank you so much for letting me visiting it, too, through your blog post! I have never been to one of these big garden shows, but lately I am thinking I am missing out, if don't go at least once. Beside all the photos of the garden related stuff, I loved the cup cakes ;-). Looks like you had an awesome day!

  10. First rate photos Tatyana , you have achieved victory over the horrible lighting conditions at these shows. I'm inspired to try harder when I go to the SF garden show next month.

    1. Indie, are there any garden shows in your area?

  12. I'm so glad you posted photos of the show. And what great photography! I was at the Northwest Show in Feb 1996, and I was awestruck from the moment I walked in.
    I have been to the San Francisco show twice, the first time when it had the same owners as the Northwest show and it was fabulous. The second time, a couple of years ago, with different owners and not quite as fabulous but still fun. I really enjoyed seeing your pictures...great job!

  18. Thanks for sharing all these great photos. I like the Black Mondo Grass with the white stones, nice contrast. Think my favorite booth is the one that looks like Dr. Seuss land. What fun.

    1. Janet, those white stones are marble, as I remember. Do you mean colorful poles? Love them!

  19. What a lot of great ideas and eye candy! The ones that really caught my attention were the natural garden forks and the CUPCAKES! There's a lot to study in your photos. Wish I could see those exhibits in person.

  21. I so needed to see those photos. Amazing shots, and living flowers...sigh. It's the middle of winter here, snow, and more snow...

    Thanks for making my day brighter.

  22. I couldn't go this year - but I'm so glad to live vicariously through your photos. Beautiful and inspiring

  23. It's nice that there are still a few flower and garden shows that actually have flowers and gardens. Most of the ones I have been to recently were all about selling home improvement.
