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 â€œSAVANNA!â€ 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.
