Attending a gardening and landscaping show—such as the Festival of Flowers held each spring in Mobile, Alabama—is a great way to find inspiration and ideas for your yard. The show featured amazing displays by landscape designers as well as plants from nurseries and unusual items for your yard.

Displays featured at the festival included:

  • Handcrafted driftwood birdhouses by Pete Floyd of Pascagoula, Mississippi.
  • Copper water features by Garden Creations from Grand Bay, Alabama.
  • Flaming stone fireplace by Chris Francis Landscapes of Daphne, Alabama.
