Chicago's Navy Pier, host of the 2011 Chicago Flower and Garden Show
This year's theme : The Sport of Gardening
How that theme came about I do not know but I can guess that a man had something to do with it.
My Favorite of all the gardens : Silent Poetry : The Confluence of Stone and Plants
by Rich's Foxwillow Pines Nursery
The Always Creative and Outstanding Tablescapes
Two very contemporary gardens
There were even Chickens in a Coop, first time this year.
And of course, flowers of every color, everywhere, all in bloom.
These are but a few highlights of the many beautiful displays. The grand opening is tomorrow and there are a lot of interesting seminars, garden chefs, cake decorating competitions, potting parties,kid's activity garden,workshops and photography exhibitions.
A welcome respite from winter that Chicagoans are sure to enjoy.
