These are the days that we become miracle workers. We render a very large vacant, sterile area into lush gardens that gardeners dream about in their own backyards. Yes, we are talking about the Chicago Flower and Garden Show at Navy Pier, March 6th- 14th 2010. Where dreams bloom and creative juices overflow in the green industry.
