Rhode Island Flower Show 2012

I was so excited to to make the hour long trip to Rhode Island for this wonderful annual flower show.  This show always helps me get over the Winter hump to Spring.  This year’s theme was Simple Pleasures.

Woodland Retreat
Simple garden trellises save room by growing vertically

 

Herbs and lettuce take up little to no space at all.

 

Fido’s doghouse has a green roof!
Every year the sand sculptors wow the crowds.

 

Breast Cancer Awareness Garden

 

Garden whimsy flying a kite

 

Woodland fairy garden.

 

Classic New England gardening shed

The only thing that would have made it better, would have been some backyard chickens tucked away in one of the gardens.  To me, they are the simplest pleasure you can add to your garden.
