2009 Home and Garden Show Opens

The Sixty-sixth annual Home and Garden show, reputed to be the largest such show in north America, opened Saturday,  February 7th at the giant I-X Center next to Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport.
The show will run through February 15th and offers all of us a welcome respite from the tundra-like northern Ohio  winter..
There are dozens of formal gardens, exhibitions on gardening, model homes and all kinds of attractions, including a wonderul book pavillion sponsored by Gray & Company Publishers.   We spent yesterday at the show and brought back the above pictures.
