Hi All,

I can really use some help.  Somehow or other (probably by opening my mouth
during a moment of insanity :D )I became Superintendent of Floriculture at
our small county fair that takes place during the Labor Day weekend.  I need
suggestions for small informational posters that I can make to position
through out the exhibit.  I'm looking for gardening tidbits pertaining to
growing flowers (especially for cold climates).  Examples of what I'm
looking for are:  Did you know that spider's eat their webs? or Did you know
that thunderstorms fertilize your flowers?  Then I can add simple
explanations for people who want more information.  Our state fair judges
want simple information that grabs the attention but not too long or
complicated that folks won't read the posters.  Anything that can be simply
illustrated with a photo or simple drawing would be extra helpful.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
