Yesterday the Girl and I attended the Northwest Home and Garden show in Seattle. The show is going on through Sunday, February, 24 and is a total must see if you are a local gardener. There is a staggering amount of display to visit and we took so many photos it was crazy!
Our favorite display garden of course was this Hobbit House. It had me swooning for low ceilings, moss paths and little bites of elfin foods. If only I could transport this whole scene to my backyard I would have the best garden/art studio on the planet.
This year there was a HUGE antique mart too. For the venue, I didn’t think the prices were to bad either. Lot’s of watering cans, old signs, berry baskets, cool chalkboards, and lots and lots of vintage wire items too.
Oh, and let’s not forget about the flowers. The Girl ran off with the camera and I now have over 500 pictures of every flower under the moon. I had no idea she was such a sucker for flowers. Now I’m thinking I should plant her a secret garden of some sort. Just for her to photograph. Hmmm.
This lady was a hoot. She sat in her display garden and waved like a real royal. If only I had some tea and biscuits to offer her.
Check this out. I cannot remember the name of the plant but I do remember the garden club ladies telling us it was very hard to grow and only does well in very humid climates.
In addition to all the flowers, bulbs, display gardens, and demonstrations, there was also a boatload of home and garden vendors as well as numerous artists.
In a nutshell, this years Northwest Home and Garden show was the awesome possum! We have a ton of pictures so I’ll try and post more later this afternoon.
Peace Out Girl Scouts,.
Have a great day!
