You ooh and aaah as you slowly back up for a different view. Suddenly you turn and are transported to yet another completely different environment that inspires exclamation... Beyond the wildly imaginative, romantically beautiful, tongue-in-cheek, and stunning displays, the flower show is: purchasing perfect obelisks (that fit the budget), warm apple dumplings a la mode, cooking demonstrations, free wine tastings, bus transport and a hot thermos of coffee, and hanging with my friend Grace all day...
This is part 1 of 2 - my personal favorites from the show. I'll try to keep the commentary short. Below, the frozen display drips into a shallow pond.
Below is Grace's favorite. It's a luxurious spa setting. The photo does not do the gorgeous and lush living wall justice. In the foreground is a millennium pool. This scene is all white, wood, water, and lush foliage.
This below was super cool. Each glass was suspended from the grid at the top of the display. We determined that it might represent water, sand, grass, forest, mountain. The vases were free to sway ever so slightly. The next photo shows a close up of a vase. The flowers sit in colored water.
This display sits up high and decorates the ceiling of a box car. All I can name are the pitcher plants.
