Hundreds flocked to the Medina County Community Center on Saturday and Sunday for a taste of spring.

The Medina County Home and Garden Show opened Saturday with about 135 vendors from kitchen designers to landscapers, crafters and farmers filling the Medina County Community Center.

Upon walking into the center, people heard live piano playing by Duane Carlson of Fairlawn, and saw an array of spring flowers, plants and trees as part of a large landscaping display designed by Mike Biskup, of Medina.

Biskup runs Greenkeepers Lawn Service and Landscaping out of Medina and has been designing the landscape display for the show for the past 14 years, he said.

All you see is snow all winter, he said. Even if they see snow outside today, they can still think spring when they come in here.

Biskup said some people come to the show with a purpose or a home project in mind, while others come in to get out of their house and into the spring spirit.

Thats why Linda Pelka, of Medina, went Saturday with her 3-year-old granddaughter, Avery James.

We wanted to get some landscaping ideas, she said. Then you look outside and its snowing.

Lisa Bertok, of Brunswick, said she goes to the show every year, and since it was snowing Saturday, she just had to get out of the house.
