Where’s Wildlife Wednesday? I had computer issues all day yesterday, so it’s going to be delayed until tomorrow…enjoy the flower show, while I go scroll through a billion pictures of mice eating sunflower seeds….
It’s that time again!
The Rhode Island Spring Flower and Garden show was last weekend in Providence, and I managed a day away from Grandmom-Duty to go last Friday.
I have to say, it didn’t quite live-up to the extravagance of years-past. There were fewer display gardens (perhaps because the Boston show is back this year), and none of them really pushed the envelope. Lots of bulbs, forsythia, witch hazel, and azaleas – things relatively easy to force into early bloom.
Water features seemed to be the unofficial theme of the show – big, bigger, biggest! – but there were a few other pretties, like this little vegetable garden. Neat, tidy, and highly attractive. Those lettuces look yummy!
(Not that I have anything against ponds and waterfalls, mind you. I was hoping for more edibles, though…)
There was fun to be found, though!
This display was less about plant material than junkyard art. How can you not love it? The turtle in the opening photo was his, too.
Hey, Son-in-Law? Can you make me some of these?
Hibernating Headcrabs? Medusa’s little sister?
You’ll have to wait and see!
