    Hey kountry, just got back from the philadelphia flower show today and thought of you when i walked in the door. The first display was along the lines of what you were talking about and was a old country barn seen. They constructed a old barn, complete with old tractor and even a corn bin with corn in it, with all types of plants forced bloom. Alot of azaleas, bradfords, service berries, and cherrys. The part that i noticed most was they had a cage with live sheep and chickens in it!!! <p>I guess someone beat you to the punch...<p>Anyways, it was a big draw and everyone loved the live aspect. Think you will have a winner with your design. To bad your so far away, because the show was great. A little to much on the florist side though, but still great...
