A great time at the Winter Silhouette Show in North Carolina. Florida kicked butt. My Hackberry raft won best in show, Louise’s Black Pine won best conifer, and Seth brought a Jim Smith Kinman Ficus which won best broadleaf. Rob Kempinski set up the most innovative out of the box display I’ve ever seen. Adam and Mike Rogers also had awesome displays. It was simply an awesome show. The drive isn’t that bad: eight hours from my place in Merritt Island. No charge to enter show, beautiful setting, lots of vendors and demos, good food, really nice people and Bill Valvanis as judge. Pretty cool weekend! Next year we should get more Florida folks to go with more Florida trees.
