The gardening show at the Fair was not quite so exciting as the other bits—and contained less deer-butt art—but there were some neat bits. I was very pleased to see a Native Plant Society garden there. (This time of year, everything’s a bit ragged locally.) There were some very…peculiar…little show gardens, about which the less said the better. (Best Use Of Replica Saber-Toothed Tiger Skull oughta be an award, though.) There were some spectacular bonsai trees, including a dogwood that rightfully won every award possible.
And then there was the Great Lawn Flamingo Migration.
I loved this way more than was probably healthy. If I had a huge watery area full of sedges…well. We know what I’d put in it.
