Happy May Day!

May 1st has many traditions, and flowers play a part in most of them.  So, in honor of May Day, I want to share with you a spring garden show I recently attended.  This spring garden show is one I look forward to every year.  3 floors of beautiful flowers and plants inside a shopping mall.  I can’t think of a more wonderful way to spend the day, viewing it’s breathtaking garden displays, listening to speakers, venders and much, much more.

 

This year’s theme was “The Garden As Art”, and featured Andy Warhol’s version of Botticelli’s “Venus” all done in flowers.  The flowers in the boxes below were colored coordinated, the were all so vibrant.Andy Warhol's version of Botticelli's venus done in flowers
