Pennsylvania Garden Expo: approachable gardening
After Saturday at the Philadelphia International Flower Show, which gives new meaning to the expression "flight of fancy," it was a different kind of pleasure to attend the Pennsylvania Garden Expo in Harrisburg Sunday.
The display gardens are actually something a real homeowner could recreate and the crafts, food and garden art were modestly priced. It cost $8 to park at the show and some attendees complained. But I spend $27 to park in Philly!
Both shows accomplished the same thing for me: making these last weeks of winter a little more endurable.
Gardening is a smaller world than you think, and I was able to visit with one of my fellow bloggers, Laura Mathews of Punk Rock Gardens. She was easy to spot. She was wearing a sweatshirt with her logo on the back. Garden Variety needs one of those!
The lighting was just off enough in the cavernous and ancient Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg to prevent me from taking any decent pictures so I had to rely on my DH to use his skills. I loaded the results onto Flickr, so you can go there and see the show for yourself!
