San Francisco Flower and Garden Show 2008

Here's where the magic happened... The wonderful folks at the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show gave my nephew and I free tickets to see the show if we'd let them put our opinion of it on their blog. Hey, that's right up my garden blogging alley! You can read our full review of the show at their site. Please be sure to read what the other guests thought about the show, too. We thought it was very wonderful.
Above and below are photos of the only garden I've ever seen using colored glass mulch that I didn't hate. It was breathtaking.

Below is my nephews favorite garden. He loved all the rocks and water.

Below: We both loved this container garden filled with Japanese maples.

Below: Michelle's garden took my breath away long before I realized it was hers. Rock on, Michelle! Your's was my favorite!

Thank you San Francisco Flower and Garden Show - we heart you!
