Home and Garden Show

Tomorrow Gourdo and I plan to take in the Ft. Wayne Home and Garden Show. It's always fun to see what's new and get ideas for the coming gardening season. Attractions this year include Don Engebretson, "The Renegade Gardener." I love his title. I wonder what makes him a renegade? I hope to find out! He'll do presentations on home landscape design and container gardening. (See above for one of the containers I created in my own garden. I rather liked the chartreuse sweet potato vine and glowing white verbena against the dark foliage of the magilla perilla.)

Master Gardeners and nurserymen and women will also give talks and demonstrations on various topics. There will be dozens of displays and vendors, too. By the time we leave the show, I'm sure I'll be more on fire for spring than I am already. Patio Container photo by JulenaJo.

  1. Mom and I wanted to take in The Renegade Gardener, but the displays held us captive and we didn't make it. Did you see him at all?
