Quailcrest Farm Spring Garden Fair 2009

I had a great time on Sunday at Quailcrest Farm in Wooster.   They have a terrific greenhouse selection of herbs and perennials, including these beauties.  I forget what the orange flower is, but it's beautiful.







This is the aptly named Pineapple Lilly.








A "pregnant onion and shade loving caladium.















There were garden and craft vendors set up on the grounds including homemade ice cream whose crank was run by a John Deere engine.   

I had a yummy Root Beer Float with homemade vanilla.






















This giant cardoon plant was blooming in the herb garden.  I just planted a couple; we'll see if mine get that big.

The buried chimney flues to contain the mint is also an idea I borrowed many years ago - it works.
