Are you ready to stroll with me through the 2004 Garden?
The theme for the Gardens in 2004 was Charming Companions. It started the way it starts each year, with a bare convention center floor.
Over 2 1/2 days this is transformed into a full garden. It never ceases to amaze me. This year, my husband's garden was a charming English Garden. He built the entry way and learned how to make a thatched roof from books and videos. It's so nice to have a spouse that can do anything he sets his mind to.
My Mother-in-law and I plastered and painted the walls.The furniture is from our house and my Mother-in-law provided the other items.
The fountain in the center was from my Brother-in-law's garden in Alabama. He was kind enough to loan it and deliver it too!
My sweetie watering before the judging with his parents supervising.
His first Best in Show!
Hope you enjoyed this garden. I am still enjoying parts of it. The minature boxwood now border my flower beds and the lavender is in my herb garden.
If you are near Nashville, drop by the Convention Center Feb 11-13 to see all the beautiful gardens and the amazing, but overpriced, antiques at the 2011 Antique and Garden Show and be sure to say Hi to Mr Creative!
