That orchid pic above is a teaser for all the garden pics I'll have for you in the next few days. In the mean time, check out all of the booths we saw at the show! There was some really amazing stuff. Some of the dealers really had an eye for design, and their booths were exceptional. Others were just so-so, in that they just sort of jammed all their stuff in their spot without much creativity. Overall, though, great eye candy!
This hand-wrought gate had my last initial on it! If I had $8500 I might have considered picking it up! Ha!
This potted "flower" with the lights was crazy but cute.
Don't forget to click to enlarge. There was a LOT to see.
How 'bout this chair made of old mattress springs and wire? Wild, eh?
I adored this bird cage:
This antique sprinkler reminded me of one we had as kids...used to trip over the darn thing as it spun, too! Hey, it kept us cool!!
Barbed wire balls, anyone?:
I loved this mini-bench, and the copper watering can sitting upon it:
The oval wrought iron planter on this table was right up my alley. I think it was $750!:
These salvaged windows created a great forefront for this booth. I'm going to do this somewhere on my property--make a "room" with vintage windows. (Of course, don't be holding your breath or anything...this may be years down the road...lol):
There you go! I'll be back in a few days with actual pictures of the gardens, which we slogged through in the rain. My sneakers and socks were like sponges, and my pants had wicked water up almost to the knee--but it was all worth it! I love the Botanical Gardens!!
