2017 Cincinnati Home & Garden Show ~ Giveaway

Are you ready for spring?

I know that I am! I’m looking forward to warmer weather and spring flowers.

I’m not really good at personally tending to the flowers, but I’m glad that other people do a great job so that I can enjoy viewing them! It’s also fun to find new inspiration that might actually be doable too.

That’s where the 2017 Cincinnati Home & Garden Show comes in.

This winter weather has me really looking forward to spring. I picked a snowy day to daydream of warmer temps at the Krohn Avant Garden Spring Show.

Experience a fresh and creative spring landscape at Krohn Conservatory’s 2014 Spring Show, the ‘Avant-Garden.’  The show will highlight a unique variety of exotic spring bulbs, fragrant shrubs, and bright annuals that are not commonly used in the typical spring garden.  Red crown imperials, twisted grasses, water hyacinths, brilliant blue delphiniums, and black tulips are just some of the plants to look for among the exciting palette of blossoming plants.

Recycled materials are used in an ‘avant-garde’ style to enhance the imaginative landscape. Basket frames and tomato cages are transformed into moss-covered chandeliers, striking flower sculptures are created from layered glassware, and paint cans are repurposed to even hang plants upside down.  Enjoy an early spring at the Krohn Conservatory and be inspired by the ‘Avant-Garden!’

 

 I absolutely loved the creative repurposing of plates and glasses!
