another garden show

The Medina Garden Show was this weekend. You know there is no such thing as too many garden shows, so we decided not to go to the roller derby and toured the show instead. It was at the Medina County Fair Grounds which is about 30 minutes south of us.  The main sponsor was our favorite garden supply company, Smith Brothers, the purveyor of that greatest of all Ohio products, Sweet Peet.   The display garden was very nice. Once again, hosta and sun loving flowers lived in harmony. Since the show was so close and the weather unusually warm, we decided to take a chance and bought plants after the show closed.








I've been itching to get out in the yard, so ...

That's one bed that doesn't need edging anymore. We need to reedge all the beds before the sweet peet shows up. The bed at the bottom of the page still needs edging. And a fence. The deer have eaten everything, even the sedum. Now Pat says that driving the Aztec in the front yard chasing deer is OK.

Looks like a great time and you sure hauled a lot out of there. What a fun day.

That hasn't helped! I'm battling with whether to dig or go to a show next weekend!!!

Looks like you had a load of plants. That is always a great time to get new plants at the end of a garden show. Feels good to get your hands dirty again. Tell Pat what ever works to keep those deer at bay to do it. LOL!

Jim, Are you working on the Guiness Book of World Records entry on most garden shows attended in one month? :-)Thanks for taking me along to all of them. -Jean

The deer have eaten everything?!! Using a vehicle for scare-tactics: excellent plan! (Now to catch up on your other garden show posts!)
