The garden tours were fantastic!. I’ve been to all conventions except 3, since I joined the ADS in 1989 and this was among the better ones. The Tour of P. Allen Smiths ‘Moss Mountain Farm’ was quite impressive.

This will be the end of my posting of the Convention photos. We all had a great time. I hope you all enjoy all the photos that several of us are posting. I have several more shows to attend this season so I’ll be posting more photos until the 1st week of May after the Show at Joe Hamms barn at the end of this month.

None of these plantings were identified. Most people thought it was Bravoure, but it seemed to be more refined that than to me.
