Show Time

The Northwest Flower and Garden Show is this weekend, and as always, a great inspiration and adventure.  I love the plant and bulb vendors and usually come home with some nice additions for the garden. My favorite vendors are Swan Island DahliasRaintree Nursery, Woodland Gardens and Far Raches Farm. Nothing like total immersion to get the planting juices really flowing.

There are also beautiful display gardens that provide a plethora of ideas for what can be done in the yard. One of my favorite ideas was a bulkhead made of 4" x 4" wire grid and rocks. I like the contrast between the round light colored rocks held by the symmetrical grid. They seems like reasonable materials to work with and of course we have rocks everywhere in the yard.
