Ocean City, N.J. Flower Show

Visiting the Jersey shore is always a pleasure.  I love walking the boards and just watching the waves crash.  The force of the waves reminds me that only God can control nature.  His design is so Awesome!

On the first weekend of June 2010 Ocean City held its 38th annual flower show on the boardwalk.  I love flower shows, whether large or small.  This one was not as large as the Philadelphia International Flower Show, of course.  But they had spectacular dispalys of beautiful plants and the designers put together some very artistic floral arrangements.  The Garden Club of Ocean City did a marvelous job!

Just a few of the displays are in these photographs I took.  The whimsical western riding boot was an entry in Class 6 called Country Music Hall of Fame.  There was a table full of hosta varieties and in the house plants division I had my eye on a lovely Angel's Trumpet.

They used God's wonderful harvest of horticulture to create some beautiful designs!  Good Job entrants and show hosts!  I loved  it.  :)
