Getting ready for spring at garden show

It was was pleasure to spend a few hours with City Editor John Bertosa enjoying a bit of spring at the Cleveland Home & Garden Show.

The Great Lakes Expo Center in Euclid was a welcome respite from the blowing snow and chilly temps outside. Indoors, gardens were in bloom and we could almost remember what it was like to see the lawns out our front doors.

That time will be here before you know it, though. John and I had the chance to talk to some readers and hear their ideas for stories we could cover and other improvements we could be making. It's always nice to hear from folks who are passionate about their news.

We also got some gardening tips from Justin Houk. His Houk Landscaping in Mentor designed The News-Herald's Celebrity Garden at the show. (Not that anyone would mistake John or me for celebrities!)
The garden was stunning. Check out the video clip to get a sense.

To reach Houk Landscaping, call 440-346-1951, e-mail or write P.O. Box 73, Mentor OH 44061.

Only 48 days till spring.
