Penny McHenry Hydrangea Festival + Before/After

The Penny McHenry Hydrangea Festival, Douglasville, GA, is this weekend, June 4-5, 2011.
Free display gardens, Free standard Flower Show, Free Festival Market
Garden Tour with Tram, $25, residential gardens including nationally recognized gardens.
This year's table, below, incomplete, already looks FABULOUS.
Big impact, little input. Love this type of Landscape Design: old table, old wheelbarrow, old light & negligible maintenance.
Same table, below, last year.
From lamps to chandelier, from potting table to dining table.
Come see our garden, it's in the free zone. Ha, no excuses!
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
Been working like a young man creating this garden. My body is not amused. Susanne Hudson & I are creating this garden.
Top pics taken yesterday, 94f & 200% humidity (please appreciate the effort). Bottom pic, I snapped last year.

Love it! Hydrangeas are my absolute favorite flowers. Against a backdrop of the old decorative table, wheelbarrow and lantern-they are simply striking. Thank you for sharing these beautiful images. Makes me want to get out and plant some hydrangeas :-)

Oh how I wish I were going. I even had it on my calendar and was so hoping to be able to take time off for this. Maybe one day! In the meantime, I'll wait for pics to see what I missed. Happy weekend, Theresa
