Nashville Lawn and Garden Show 2015

Earlier in the month Himself and I made our annual visit to the Nashville Lawn and Garden show.  It was SO needed... only a few days earlier (opening day for them!) it had snowed 7 inches and we were once again trapped on our hill.

This year wasn't as interesting as other years, there were quite a few less garden displays and those there weren't as intricate.  One large section of the building was devoted to a 'wine party' with TN vineyards touting their wines.  Why?  

But there were still cool things to look at...


We both love this millstone fountain.


And what a fun idea of scattering in colored glass into a rock garden to make it a "pond".  I'll be using this idea.


A variation of a pergola.  And isn't that chair beautiful?


There were several small planting areas that I'm going to do my spin on in the yard.



Purple!  I want purple in my garden too.


My favorite shabby chic designer was back.  This year they featured the concrete 'fabric' drape planters.  It's an idea that seems easy enough.  I might give it a try.




So fun!

Several of the floral designers made fairy gardens.




Such cute little dish gardens!

Another favorite: the formal floral arrangements.







They are always so lovely.

Then we moved on to the commercial area.  A lot of the same stuff as in years past.

However, these painted stones made us smile...


Too cute!



Wouldn't this be fun covered in moss?


Himself waiting patiently while I shop.  


Ah Spring... I'm so glad you are back!
