I don’t usually do re-posts, but I just read this article in the Seattle Times and had to share – the Northwest Flower and Garden Show, the biggest deal in town, has finally, finally found someone to take it on and continue all the fun for another year, with “no major changes” planned. Phew! I hope they find a way to make it profitable enough to keep it going for a long while yet. Even though I complained about some aspects of the show this year, it’s always such a source of inspiration and education and I was really starting to worry that it was gone for good.

I’m going to get my tickets early this year, maybe for more than one day this time. Hooray for reprieves!

(It’s funny – when I went to the show’s official site just now, it didn’t have anything about the sale being final. Guess they’ll get to it when they can!)
