The rilly, rilly big shew! It’s here again – the Northwest Flower & Garden Show kicked off today, February 3, 2010, after nearly expiring when the original owners said they weren’t continuing following last year’s installment. Happily, a buyer was found, and the show is going on! I will be attending with my mom tomorrow, and hope to have some fun photos to share later in the week.
As always, I look forward to the wacky show gardens, seeing some unusual and rare plants, the amazingly informative and inspiring seminars (Fergus Garrett of Great Dixter is lecturing on training your eye to make good plant combinations – I hope to score a ticket to that one!), and all the non-profit booths dispensing free advice on things like fruit tree care, bee-keeping, and seed saving.
