California Flower Food & Garden show

Garden shows are happening everywhere this time of year!
 I am super excited about this one  Cal State Garden Show !

I have the honor of working with Jeannie Hanson of Geno's Garden!
Jeannie is a Garden Designer, coach and writer. Jeannie has great ideas for her Mexican themed exhibit at the show this year. I will be giving her a helping hand this week (jumping up and down in excitement) 

I will be working on the Vegetable Garden area of her exhibit. Totally up my alley! 
Here is a picture of the space I will be working on.

The view coming through the patio area. 

Outside view of my area. In this area will be 2 raised Vegetable beds, a waterfall feature, a walkway , some pots and a grey water system.

Here are some more pictures of the bones of the space.

Here is a side view. The area with the 2 windows will be a dinning area.

Inside the dinning area.

A view of the inside.

This is the front entrance of the exhibit. Jeannie shared with me all the plans for the space. I will share as we go along. For now I will leave it to your imagination.

The cobblestone flooring is gorgeous! I would love this in my backyard.

This is one of the water features . So rustic!

These are some gates and another water feature that will be used.

I am very excited to be a part of this wonderful experience. It is very neat seeing how it all comes together.

Over the next few days I will be sharing how this display comes together! Who knows there may be a few surprises for some lucky readers who are local.

Are any of my local blogger/twitter peeps attending this event? 
I hope to see you there!

Happy Gardening Friends!!!

  2. Gorgeous, Jenn! Did you have a good time?
    I would love that cobblestone in my yard too!
