The Home & Garden Show was a blast. It consisted of 4 different buildings, all containing different aspects of home and garden improvement. Somehow, my mom and I finished our day in what we would both agree as being the coolest building. The Travel and Transportation Building housed the Gardens & Outdoors vendors. Immediately upon walking into the building, my glasses fogged due to the humidity from the waterfalls. They even had full-sized trees planted. I kept telling my mom they should give me one considering it’s the last day of the show.
But some of those trees were upwards of $1000, so I’m fairly certain they were going right back to the nursery unless someone was smitten enough to buy. I almost was. I did, however, buy myself some plants for a very cool $10.
These are Tillandsia or “air plants”. They essentially need so little water that they can just sit on rocks and get an occaisonal misting of water to be happy. The first red one is a little scraggly because Jin took it on a tour of the living room. To remedy that, I’ll most likely buy myself one of these:
On our way out of the Home & Garden Show, I got a sneak peak at my birthday present. Actually, I was oohing and ahing over an entire booth of a local artist couple, Bob and Donna Walter of Walter Works, so much that my mom offered one of their pieces as my birthday gift in a few months. I’m so excited and I already have plans for it (of course!). So here it is, and be sure to check back in March for my garden plans!
