It was raining when I left Ann Arbor and snowing when I arrived in Chicago. No matter. I met up with many gardening friends and enjoyed their company. I usually pay fairly close attention to every aspect of all displays, but I admit I was a little distracted (in a good way) by all the fun people around me.
The official theme of this year's show was "the sport of gardening," but judging from my photos, it seems the theme was leafless trees, flowers used to represent water, and cool & unusual animals.
Enjoy the slide show!
