You Know It’s ‘Officially’ Spring in Seattle…
In case you didn’t know, the Northwest Flower and Garden Show is going on NOW at the Convention Center in Seattle. I look forward to this event all winter (and all year for that matter). And really can’t imagine a better way to kick off spring than looking at display gardens, shopping for garden stuff and buying new plants!
For those of you not living in the Seattle area (since that’s only excuse for not attending yourself), I’ll do my best to capture the display gardens in a post following the show. I’ll also share some of my favorite vendors, like Glass Gardens NW in booth #1104 (this is where I get my glass pond floats)!
For the folks attending or working at the show, I’ll be wondering around all day Saturday. I should be pretty easy to spot in my new black Hunter boots. If that’s not easy enough, here are the seminars I plant to attend:
