If an outdoor bed, like the one shown above, is not in your garden plans, there most assuredly are other ideas to steal; plants, ornaments & garden stuff to buy; and landscapers to run your ideas by. I don't require an outdoor bed, but it gave me the idea of strengthening my hot tub cover's support, covering with a large cushion and oversized pillows. It's already got a roof and curtains surrounding the area. I say this, but I'll never do it.

|There were a lot of outdoor curtains this year.|
|One of my favorite sightings - an arborvitae cactus. Now that's a cactus that'll grow in our area.|
|When you walk in there's an elaborate bamboo structure with bamboo in the middle. |
How the hell did they transport the stuff? It's not as though you
can fold & unfold the stuff. Had to have been brought in by semis.
|This was interesting. It's an umbrella bar/waterfall with koi pond IN the bar.|
|Here's the in-bar koi pond. It's cool and different and all, |
but I don't think I could eat sushi on top of the fish.
|Lights integrated into columns.|
|Bad photo, but it's a planted roof on a doghouse.|
|Another bed in teh garden, but as opposed to an actual bed intended for outdoors, |
this bed/bath area was a conceptual mash-up of bedroom and garden.
|The bar/pond/waterfall combo thingy.|
|Around the base of the central bamboo |
structure were displays by area floral shops.
|It's hard to see here, but the photo is actually of the rain curtain behind the sign. |
You can sort of see the rain just above the sign.
