Lehigh Valley Flower & Garden Show 2018

The Lehigh Valley Flower & Garden Show at the Allentown Fairgrounds is back again this year from March 9th - March 11th. This year the focus is Fields, Farms, and Backyards. What's different this year? Well, more vendors,  free seminars, flower arranging demonstrations, more kids activities, baked goods, crafts, and plants & flowers for sale. And of course ... landscaping ideas. 
There are many pretty landscape displays such as this one with a water feature
a pretty curved garden bed
 and this one with a Weeping Cherry Tree as the central focus.
Not really landscaping ... this one I think of as a lovely floral tapestry.

There are also many plants and flowers for sale.
Maybe it's Primroses that tickle your fancy
or one of these lovelies displayed so prettily.
Looking for something different? These are Hellebores, something totally new to me.

There are animals, too. 
Cute little piggies
and a pair of friendly goats. I have to say though, I miss the baby ducks that were a big hit at last year's show. 

A favorite is back again ... The Garden Railroaders Train Display.
There is just something about trains that brings out the kid in everyone.

If I had a suggestion to make, it would be more landscaping ideas for small scale gardens. Yet, all in all, it was a nice way to spend some time.
Oh, and don't forget to visit the Farmer's Market on the grounds.
