SPRINGFEST Flower & Garden Show, 2006

Kudos to Alisonn for her recent posting about this absolute
gem of a show that has to be one of the best kept secrets in all of New Jersey! Not only were the garden exhibits
excellent, but there were plants galore for sale; I had no
idea that Atlock Farms (from Somerset), and one of my NJ
favorites, would be there selling - so I went a little nuts
and ending up making extra trips out to the car. And even
though we got there shortly after 10:00am Saturday, just as they opened, someone else beat me to the stunning, 6-foot potted brugmansia (in full flower!) that Atlock was letting go for just $45.00. . .but I made up for my loss
with hellebores (in flower), anenomes (in flower), and a
darkest blood-red amaryllis (in flower). As if all that
weren't enough, someone was selling the best homemade
fudge I've had in ages, and the food tent (it all takes
place in a series of greenhouses and tents) offered up
homemade ham & split pea soup to die for. . .what a day!

You can still catch this show: it runs through Tuesday,
March 14th; admission is only $8. (less for seniors and
children) and worth every penny. . .for more information:
