California Flower & Garden Show

California Days, Moroccan Nights
... your personal oasis

I've been working on my display garden for Sacramento's upcoming California Flower & Garden Show. I've never done this before - it's highly fun and challenging! Thought I'd share a bit with you. It's ALL ABOUT CHOICES ... choices about stone, plants, theme, boulders, pots, themes, layout, even, in my case, beds!

In my garden the key element is a place to lie down an read, take a nap, just "be." This is one bed that's available from the Antique Trove in Rocklin, an authentic carved Spanish bed. Not Moroccan, but certainly exotic!

But then, here's a headboard and footer I could use...I'd just have to figure out how to create a way to attach it to some bed rails.

Then, my third choice...raiding my now-independent, on-her-own daughter's bedroom for what's left of her old bed! Do I go for the easy choice? You'll have to come to the show and visit my garden to see!

The show runs from April 8 - 11th at Cal Expo. To find out more about the vendors, the speakers, visit the California Flower & Garden website, or the Facebook Fan Page, or both! Tomorrow I'll share some more about my Moroccan garden! Please feel free to join in the discussion.
