Life is good in the garden

Why is life good in the garden? For some, it’s relaxing with friends and family over a meal, ice tea or glass of wine. Or watching the kids race around playing games, laughing all the while. For me, a notable introvert, it’s having quiet interludes with a few friends walking around the garden to discover new flower buds or leaves emerging, admiring a plant combination that works particularly well, picking and sharing a sweet pea or ripe tomato, or sitting still in the Adirondack chairs watching the moon rise. I also use the garden as part of my exercise routine, especially for an upper body and gluteous maximus workout (though I may have to hire some help for the first time for hauling the mounds of the heavy stuff this year to save the back muscles).

Shameless pitch to encourage you to attend the Yard, Garden & Patio Show…
Virtually every element of outdoor living and creating the good life can be found at the Yard, Garden & Patio Show. Display gardens are rich in style but well within reach. All your senses will be tickled, and you’ll probably even find a little magic. All this while the kids have a place to play and the adults have lots of places to relax and enjoy locally crafted beverages, locally designed garden spaces, and the work of local and regional artists. You can even get a little to exercise playing bocce ball or dancing to the local musicians, or learn how to use that outdoor kitchen or grill with some cooking lessons.

Please join us. Life is good in the garden is the theme of this year’s Yard, Garden & Patio Show. The show is brought to you by the nursery industry and we want to share our passion for good living with you!
