The other day I dragged Brigham to the National Home Show and Canada Blooms, a huge show dedicated to showing off all that's new and innovative in the world of residential construction, design and gardening. I'm a sucker for shows like this, but then once I'm there, I wonder what I was thinking! All the crowds combined with a stroller and toddler who would much rather walk makes for a speedy trip through the aisles and back home!
I was happy to get to check out Canada Blooms though. I'd never been to that part of the show before (living in an apartment, there never seemed much point in learning about garden design). But now that we have a house (with a teeny tiny yard), I was more inspired to go.
There was one garden display that really caught my attention and I wanted to share. The designers decided to plan out an entire garden scheme - amazing tree house and sitting area included - using pallets as building material. Normally used in shipping, these pallets found new life in this garden, and I thought the results were pretty cool.
Check out some of the pics I took...

|In the sitting area, they included a water feature and fire bowl.|
