A touch of spring...

Yesterday, I went to the Flower Show at Peter Becker Community. It was their 30th show and was as delightful as always. This painting was in the lobby. I love the way it looks as if it was being torn out of paper.

I just wanted to share a few of the delightful visions that were there today. I am not sure you can tell but there was a waterfall rolling off the piano.

The backdrops were all amazing. It is always tempting to try and take them home.

This section was a retrospective of the past 30 years of the show. I heard a volunteer saying that the first show was simply house plants grown by the residents. Oh my, how they've grown.

One section was filled with terrariums put together by the residents. In the background you can see the wood spirit. Close up of these is coming.

The miniature world wasn't forgotten either. If you look really close you can see two people sitting by the pond.

Here is the wood spirit. Outside in the hallway, there were pictures of the entire process, including a picture of the model for the treeman!

The theme for the show was Our Favorite Things. Do you see the white dress with a blue satin sash? Does that sound familiar?

An inviting treehouse door. Alas, no one invited us in.

There were some wonderful ideas and painted furniture. I love the blue in this dresser.

It was hard to believe that yesterday I was looking at wonderful springtime flowers and today I was cleaning snow off my car. We had a surprise storm today. Starting as snow but never changing to the rain they predicted. And only 4 more days until spring!

  1. Thank you so much for sharing these beautiful pictures! Wish I could have been there in person to see the show but this is a great option. Gives me inspiration for spring themes.
