The Home and Garden show was BIG. It’s in two buildings. We got to see everything from some nice display gardens to as-seen-on-TV, it dices, it slices, it’s the who knows what it is.
We found Eco-Brick once again at the show. This Ohio product is a great example of being green, efficient and cool all at the same time. It is a chord wood substitute made from compressed hardwood shavings. We filled the Hyundai (should have brought the Aztec) with the stuff. An extra benefit of Eco-Brick is that the boys do not recognize them as wood so they don’t chew them.
If I woke to this scene, I'd be calling Pat and saying something like "look Pat, come see the deer eat our garden to the nubs." Or something like that. At a garden show, it looks very cool.
What trip to Columbus would be complete without a visit to the Franklin Park Conservatory? I could sit and look at the glass art displays or be enveloped by the comforting green all day long. Oh yeah, we also bought some more glass from their in-house glass works.
I love anything with big green leaves. Somehow I think that this guy wouldn't make it past late September in Cleveland, even with a heating pad.
As we were walking past this plant, Pat said, "look Jim, a ligularia you don't have." Ha!Ha! I have to get one of these guys.
The Chuihuly glass at the Conservatory is wonderful to look at. His art is spread out over the entire conservatory.
