GardenScape '06 Starts Tomorrow!

Am I allowed to post these images? I hope so! The '06 show is looking great—I stopped in about noon today.

Anyway, what you're looking at here is a gorgeous specimen of Cercis canadensis 'Covey', (that's the contorted redbud), which I think is from the Hosmer display.

Next, Zaretsky & Associates' "Green Man," created by an employee.

Below that is one of Bill Valvanis's excellent bonsai. This year he actually made water tables for the planters to stand on, in keeping the the show's theme, "Reflections." If you have traveled Bonsai Alley then you know it sloooooopes all the way down from the Dome to Minnett—I have no idea how Bill did this and made them all level. You've got to see it.

Next we have another vignette, including a beautiful, healthy blue corydalis that caught my eye—'China Blue'—is that hardy in zone 5?

Finally, a scene of the lake, yes the LAKE, made in the dome for this show. Sounded kinda wacky; turned out beautifully.

Stop down. If you're looking for me, please ask around. I still don't know where my space will be yet.
