C. M. Nichols Landscape Co. is one of the 17 exhibitors in this year’s Portland Flower Show and it’s a pretty good bet that this garden will be remembered for a long time to come – it’s called – Meandering Into Spring. The centerpiece of his first ever exhibit at the local Show is a bust of a Native American said Chris M. Nichols, owner of his own landscape company that bears his name. It was sculpted of New England granite by Joe Gray of Guilford, NH. (Please visit www.graystonemasonry.com for more information on Gray.)
Nichols said that the bust is 7 ft. 5 in. tall and weighs 1,800 lbs. It’s for sale for $6,500.00 Nichols said he would deliver it to the purchaser. There are several other smaller sculptures in the exhibit also for sale.
The opening night Gala & Awards Ceremony is Wednesday, March 4th from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm. Please see www.portlandcompany.com/flower. Advance tickets available online, on facebook and at participating retailers see website or call for more information. (207) 775-4403.
