My first day here at the Gardening World Cup and the display gardens are well underway. Designers from South Africa, New Zealand, France, Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, U.K. and the U.S. are franticly raising walls, moving mulch and planting trees with local crews. While Typhoon Danis didn’t rip anything apart, it did delay some installations and they will be working through the night getting ready for the judging tomorrow. There’s also a team of Ikebana experts filling the Hotel Europe (where I’m staying) with over the top arrangements. The back drop for all this is Huis Ten Bosch, a Dutch inspired theme park that is so far beyond description, it deserves a post of it’s own – maybe later this week.
