Maryland Home & Garden Show

Porter Landscaping

The theme for this year's Maryland Home & Garden Show  is "Wine and Dine al Fresco," and there are wine bottles everywhere!

No one executed that theme more thoroughly than the folks at Porter Landscaping.

Not only did they create a dinner plate and silverware in the stone pavers, they had a fountain made entirely of stacked wine bottles and wine bottle plant markers!

For more pictures of this display, keep reading. For more pictures of the show, go to my Flickr page.

And, of course, Porter won "Best Interpretation of Show Theme."

I'll be posting more about the show at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in the days ahead. It runs today and again next weekend, when orchids will be the theme.

About Susan Reimer
Susan Reimer has spent 16 years writing about raising kids - among other topics - in her column for The Baltimore Sun. And every time son Joseph or daughter Jessie passed another milestone - driver's license, college, wedding or a move to a new military duty station - she has planted another garden. Now she will be writing about those gardens - and yours - here on Garden Variety.

Susan isn't an expert gardener, but she wasn't an expert mother, either. Both - the kids and the gardens - seem to be doing well in spite of her.

She lives in Annapolis with her husband, Gary Mihoces, who loves to cut his grass but has noticed that there seems to be less of it every time the kids pass another milestone.
