2008 Rock Garden Show

I crashed the 2008 Spring show of the Wasatch Rock Garden Society in Salt Lake City and put together this short show.

In my opinion, the rock garden is one of the highest form of the botanical arts. Masters of the art carefully reconstruct some of nature's most fragile ecosystems to grow plants from high alpine ridges and desert outcroppings.

The annual rock garden tour visits the gardens of the state's prize rock gardens. This year's tour was challenged a bit by the unseasonably cold Spring weather.

NOTE, after the tour, I visited Growing Empire Nursury owned by Ruth MacAngus.
