Florescence Elements 2009

Florescence Elements flower show

I don’t know if it was the recession or the ‘Elements’ theme of this years garden show but there were far more smaller designs and none of the flashy huge designs that were there last show. Orange and green were everywhere. Funny thing that they show up everywhere when the economy slows down. I’d even replaced my white dishes with green ones a few months back.

Small water gardens, small landscapes and smaller designs were everywhere. Proteas again stole the show it’s a shame they won’t grow here, and who knew that artichoke plants were so very cool? I must have one. It’ll be an annual here our winters are too cold for it.
