|Oh Canada! Great use for Kalachoe's eh? :-P|
The Canada Blooms portion of the show was a lot smaller and more concentrated. Overall it was a great show, a little less showy than years past and the market place was smaller than I remember. However, the National Home Show section was a nice draw once we were done with the Blooms portion.
Like a bone-head, I forgot to check my camera to see if I remembered the memory card. Forgive my photos, as they are from my camera phone. Sorry.
Here are some of the highlights I chose:
I'm quite partial to interesting floral designs. Aren't these sweet?
Orchids, sphagnum moss, Kermit Mums, Aspidistra leaves.
|Peace on Earth|
I thought this one was quite clever. Called "Peace on Earth". This photo does not capture it at all. The wood use is all drift wood, weathered by water. It must of taken hours to put together and years to collect. I really think it was done well.
This is the roof top garden display.. I really like the concept, but how realistic it is to maintain it in this patterning is uncertain. It certainly points to a great trend and environmental focus.
Sorry, I tried a close up. Sprouts growing in these cool clay pellet medium.
|Plant World's Display|
I feel bad as my camera cut off the other container, but a colleague of mine put these together, and I think they may have not been the showiest, but they certainly have unique elements that could realistically be situated in your own backyard. Well done Edward!
It was a fun evening. Parking is free after 5pm, which I took advantage of. Cheers to the Bloom display designers and organizers.
Yes, I agree with your comments about earlier years of the show...for wealthy overachievers :)albeit gorgeous! Thx for sharing this year's more attainable ideas!ReplyDelete
