So we survived another garden show. I always enjoy doing it but it really is a grind. We have a half day of set up, five 14 hours days, followed by a half day of take down. Its taken a whole month for me to recover sufficiently to blog about the garden show. Linda has firmly decreed that the Beez Neez will not participate in the garden show in 2012. Yet Sarah has been telling her what a wonderful experience it has been for Rachel and what a shame it is that the other grand children will not have that experience. I've also had several of the volunteers who worked at our booth offer to run it for me next year. At this point I'm still not holding my breath. By the way, grand daughter Rachel did a marvelous job as cashier. Not only was she pleasant and knowledgeable in helping customers, but she was also very accurate in handling the cash and filling out the credit card receipts.
There were several significant changes to the garden show this year. They expanded the plant market such that we were moved off the main aisle leading from the dispay gardens to the food court. I was concerned about that initially but another change more than compensated for it. They have a new much larger larger area for all of their seminars and the path to the seminars lead right past our booth. It was like watching the tide rise and fall as we had waves of customers flow past as seminars let out.
