2012 NW Flower & Garden Show – “April In Paris”
“April in Paris” is a visual rendition of the song made famous by Frank Sinatra in 1950. It depicts a Paris street scene in spring with a Café and Boulangerie and neighbored by an artist-in-residence in her refined, simple and elegant garret. A brick path fronts the buildings, winding past a fresh cut flower cart and market stall of bulbs for planting. Plant material includes spring blooming favorites, formal hedging material and stretches of lawn. Plant material and design are meant to reflect the European style of casual symmetry, varied texture and lots of color. An adjoining park with benches nestled amongst the flora and a fountain or two completes the picture of April in Paris.
