Each year, the Association of Professional Landscape Designers gathers for a conference with informative workshops, breath-taking garden tours and fantastic speakers. Cleveland was center stage, and it did not disappoint!
Pictured here is Bobbie Schwartz, president of APLD in her self proclaimed 'plant collector' garden. I took over 800 pictures of the events - from the annual award ceremony to garden tours throughout the city. The Cleveland Plain Dealer covered the event with two large pieces with lovely photos. You can see coverage here. The 2012 conference will be held in San Francisco, and from what I heard registration will need to be capped! Watch www.apld.org for updates.
