Rhode Island Flowershow (1 of 1): Louis's first flowershow garden ever, at one of the early flowershows in Providence, Rhode Island, way back in the early 1990's. Louis teamed up with an extraordinary stone sculpture, Tim de Christopher: Check out his pair of wheeled stone-seated, god-headed benches; intricately-carved fountain; and—yes, here it is again; Louis re-used it at the Summer Parterre showhouse in Newport two years later—the carved granite curbing.
A big truckload of Louis's potted conservatory plants "lushes up" Tim's stunning stonework. Add a modest amount of sod, unrolled onto the concrete to make a "lawn", and the exhibit is ready to go. (The show was only for four days, so this fanciful display didn't need to be planned for the long term.)
As usual, flowershow photography is just about impossible: So that the gardens themselves are highlighted, the surrounding ambient light is kept much lower—which comes out in the photography as pitch black.
