Zone 5 – Favorites On The 5th – Speaking At The Chicago Flower & Garden Show

I love this quote that Beth Burden sent out to all of the speakers at this year’s Chicago Flower & Garden Show

IF YOU ARE DELAYED FOR ANY REASON: please call Carol, our on-site seminar manager.

Yep. Me. On-site seminar manager at the Chicago Flower & Garden Show that runs March 9 – 17 at Navy Pier. We have our team meeting tomorrow so I’ll get to see the show being built. You’ll have to settle for seeing behind the scenes pictures on FaceBook.

I’m speaking too. Gee, I wonder what nice things the on-site seminar manager will say when she introduces me? My presentation on ‘Creativity in the Garden’ is all set to go, and I even tied it to the Art theme of the show.  If you’ve ever wondered how I made the 3′ x 8′ mosaic that graces the banner of this blog, this will be your chance to find out.  Join me at the show on Tuesday, March 12th, at 2:45.

Come to the Show to see what Salvador Dalí has to say about creativy

Nearly two dozen display gardens will provide inspiration with vertical plant walls, water features, edible gardens, outdoor living rooms, a “Kids’ Activity Garden,” an “Art of Floral” interpretive exhibit, and much more! The all-new “How to Garden” demonstration studio will offer practical tips on all things green, and experts will be available to help cure horticulture headaches.

Glean even more great ideas from the Chicago Flower & Garden Show’s professionally-designed “Tablescapes” exhibition, watch daily demos from award-winning “Garden Gourmet” chefs at the kitchen amphitheater and buy must-have garden and lawn-care products, plants and tools from top suppliers in the show’s extensive “Marketplace.”

The stroller-friendly show will inspire, educate and motivate gardeners and gourmets of all ages and abilities. You can get $2 off the box office price for each adult ticket purchased by ordering on-line.  Check the website for parking and public transportation options.  Show parking starts as low as $10 at the Navy Pier East and West garages.

So here we are on ‘Favorites on the Fifth’ and I didn’t have to look far to find my favorite this month.  Look out Chicago Flower & Garden Show, here I come!
