Landis Valley Garden Show

Hi everyone,
I can't believe that it's nearly mid May! I feel like I have so many things I'd like to do around the house, etc. And the calendar continues to fill up with little dates for this and that. How time flies.
This past Saturday marked our now yearly tradition of attending the Garden Show at Landis Valley Museum. The grounds are gorgeous, and it's a lovely way to spend the day before Mother's Day with my Mom.
It's also a fantastic place to stock up on Heirloom plants, veggies, etc, for your spring and summer garden.

Here is my Mom. She always helps me pick out my plants as I always having trouble knowing what's what.

We watched a little demo on natural dying. Of course I stuck around for that one, she had wool on the table:-)

I turned around and saw these yarns and fabrics hanging on a line along a stone wall. So pretty...

Notes from the show...

Good morning little Grange building, where the show was held today.

Here's me and my little buddy.

These announcements and Pennsylvania cards are wonderful. I want one! From Melanie Linder.

These linens by Sara Medley were a fantastic modern spin on Dutchiness!

I really loved talking with Rose Ann from Sheeps in the Meadow.

here are her wonderful scarves

and to wrap up my post about the market, here's a fantastic sandwich wrapper and placemat by Kimberly Scola.

Max had lots of fun running around town with Matt, and ended the day playing with his new buddies. This was a unique Indie show and it was fun to chat with artists from around Pennsylvania. I was surprised to learn that Rose Ann has a Cotswolds sheep, and I just loved the Pennsylvania inspired art.
