We returned from the Leu Gardens show in Orlando this past weekend very exhausted but very happy that there was such a great turnout ! We had gorgeous weather and the gardens looked beautiful even after battling another tough winter. The Yellow and Pink Tababoulias were looking just fabulous.
Our show went so well, that we practically sold out...we only had a handful of plant pots left, but of course, Mitch came home with some special specimens for his own collection.
This coming weekend, we are at Greenfest! in Tampa, FL. The show takes place on the grounds of the historic University of Tampa, right on the river. Look for us at the back of the park, near the river. We will have a great selection of plants that will do any garden proud! Note, many people have been asking about the the Giant Lavender Flower Milkweed, and we will have some, along with the White Flowering Milkweed that produces interesting "balls" of seeds. We have the Proven Winner Orange Osteospermum (pic above) and more of the Miss Aimee Gardenia. We will also be bringing a new crop in of hand made Cedar Birdhouses from Aunt Mary. Hope you all can join us.
