    1. Educational, too. I went back through the show and pondered the choices made. The show was all the more interesting for it.

    1. I think you are another who would excel at this styling business.

  5. What a great display, abd collect of pots. The plants are pretty good as well.

    1. Great idea for a show--educational, no?

  6. This makes the pots and the plants even better than one or the other.

  7. Good staging and costumes can boost what's great in the the direction of fabulous. Growers living in the shadow of Hollywood have apparently learned the lesson well. Wonderful photos, as always.

    1. Thanks Kris. It was pleasing though, to see a special "Outstanding Merit" ribbon awarded to a plant in a plain black plastic nursery pot. It really was all about the plant.
