Yesterday I attended the Nashville Lawn & Garden Show. There were over 20 landscaped displays, lots of vendors (most were garden related but some not) and speakers. I practiced restraint and all I bought was a little bay tree for $7.50. I was excited to hear Helen Dillon speak - she gave a slide show on her garden and it was wonderful!

You might have to look closely to see the flame shooting out of this water feature. I have to say I'm not too crazy about fire in the garden but I do love the urn.
This gazebo was my favorite - the roof was covered in mosses.
Waterfalls and water features were everywhere!
This was a large display and I could not get the full view. I liked the way they combined the plants. It was very creative.
Another impressive water feature. I kept wondering how they managed to get these boulders inside the building.
I was a little disappointed in the plants. It seemed that everyone used the same plants over and over again. Lots of conifers, azaleas and Japanese maples!
Now this display was different. The entire lawn area is covered with thyme and the herbs are planted in troughs.
One room was filled with flower arrangments -
I really liked this one -
Someone got creative with a tire and forsythia -
And finally, Helen Dillon's program
And I got my photo taken with her! :)
