Antiques & Garden Show of Nashville

Wow this has been a crazy week and I am just now finding the time to edit photos and get back here to tell you about the Antiques & Garden Show of Nashville.  This year’s show, Landscape of Design, was packed with fabulous speakers, antique dealers, garden related shops and the not to be missed 2016 Gardens.

Four gardens had been created for display throughout the exhibit and each one was delightful.

First up, Southern Roots, “a fanciful tree root inspired sculpture, by Steve Tobin, dances its way through the brilliant hues of this classic cutting garden evocative of the former Parterre Garden at Cheekwood”..

The center garden, Repos, was created by Gavin Duke.

“Conceptually, our use of ‘Repos’ is an interpretation of rest, sleep or tranquility in the landscape.  We would suggest a moment in this garden where one could retreat from the hectic daily routine and unplug from data bombardment.  Creating an atmosphere for reflection and escape is our intention throughout the space with the use of plant enclosure, shelter and comfortable furnishings.  Relax!”…
