Before last week’s show in San Mateo, California, “Gardens For a Green Earth,” recedes into the dim past, just a few photos, not at all a comprehensive account.
All photos taken by MB Maher at the preview on Tuesday, 3/20/12.

As a rite of spring, a garden show is hard to beat. Every year the strengths of a show and its theme will appeal to different tastes. The show this year, apart from SAVANNA! by Rock & Rose Landscapes & Greenlee & Associates, didn’t particularly resonate with the plant geek that I am, but it’s gratifying to know that the show was a success and there is a public eager to attend. Congratulations and warm thanks to all who participated.
For a wonderfully detailed account of the show, check out Bamboo and More.
Of course MB Maher’s pictures make the whole thing look dreamy! It’s good to know I have another blog to link to where my readers can see good photos unlike mine (my post won’t be up until next week).
BTW I was just admiring my cute little Agave pygmae ‘Dragon Toes’ this afternoon. Thank you so much!
MB’s photos are 1st rate as usual.
Loree, I’m so glad I was able to hand over Dragon Toes!
Kathy, I heard so many negative comments about that lighting…
Oh, so much to catch up on! I garden like crazy and miss so many beautiful photos. Good to see how the pros photograph: fabulously! Pat MB on the back for me.
