|White Hyacinths at the 2012 Chicago Flower and Garden Show ©CindyRippe2013|
I was about to leave the show last year and almost missed this small display of white flowers in vases. It was up against one of those giant cement pillars that they use in exhibit halls. I stopped dead in my tracks (I was in a hurry of course, Lee had been patient long enough I thought). There were bunches of Amaryllis, Roses and Hyacinths. All of the flowers were white with black accents around the display. Stunning! Maybe this isn't the most artistic photograph (line of design, background distractions, etc) but I'm sure glad I took a moment to capture the details and beauty that nature provides in this simple white flower.
I looked back through my files and found that the display was by Surroundings by Colin. I hope he returns to this years Flower and Garden Show. I'll be looking for his display!
