Wichita Flower and Garden Show

I am planning on having several posts on what I saw at the Flower and Garden Show in Wichita Kansas this last weekend. It was snowing to beat the band when we left Kansas City at 7 in the morning on March 3rd. But I didn't let that descurage me. I was needing a weekend away from the Kansas City plus we went with a friend so I didn't have to drive. We stayed at the Hyatt in Wichita. What was nice was that it is connected to the convention center where the show was held.

Here are some pictures that show the size of the trees and rocks that they brought in. I was impressed. I can't imagine how long it takes them to set some of the displays up. The back side of one of the diplays they had the rocks stacked 10 to 12 feet high. I am envious of the talent that the people who set these up have. The one thing that is amazing is that I was very impressed with the design and how much effort they went through to get everything set up but I couldn't tell you the name of any of the landscape companys that did them. I didn't see any tables set up to tell about the company or business cards to take. It could be that I just missed it. Since I am only looking for ideals that I can do.
