The 2016 show was a nice treat for my husband and I. The beautiful gardens really brightened up the gray weather we have been having. I loved shopping the usual places and vendors we have been frequenting for years. My favorite part of the show was the display built by high school students. Truly very excited about the spring ahead. One of the best show yet with so many things to see at every turn. The photo competition was great also. Back to work this next week, but what a way to end on a fantastic note with the show.
This year's flower and garden show was not very good. Less displays from last year. Does anyone know why there are less flower displays and not may outdoor decks?
