Hibiscus is currently in bloom and there were several that were in pristine condition. So, I got a number of shots of various colors — yellow, peach and red of the Asiatic variety.
Urns throughout the gardens were in full bloom with annuals of many kinds with good choices for inclusions, striking contrasts of color.
I didn’t have a chance to speak with Jon because everyone was bending his ear. I would like to have known what some of the more unusual plants and shrubs were. Some I don’t recall ever seeing before. I just enjoyed being there taking picture after picture.
The artwork on display was also a delight. I can never get enough of it. It has been more than 40 years since I touched a brush, but seeing great art at various shows throughout the area makes me want to pick up a brush again. My old case of brushes and oils are probably all dried out and require all fresh and new oils again. I’ll have to give it some thought.
