I’m heading back to the Northwest Flower & Garden Show in a couple of hours – it’ll be my last visit. This makes me sad but I’m exhausted. Before I go, I thought I’d pass along some of my garden show favorites from the display gardens. These are the features in the gardens that spoke to me most.
First, a little video of the water drums. How cool would it be to have these in your garden? Read more
Don’t use your sweet darling kids as an excuse not to come to the garden show!! There’s an entire section (next to the food court) dedicated to entertain and educate your children about gardening.
It’s free and a very nice spot to relax (and write a blog post). Some kids were making bird nests when I visited and others were simply playing and running around releasing energy. Personally I wanted to take a nap on the hammock but…it’s not there for me.
My favorite parts? The chickens, bunnies, and the bird nest stage!! Read more
Even though the Northwest Flower & Garden Show doesn’t open until tomorrow, I was able to sneak into the show (during my lunch break) and get these secret behind the scenes photos of the setup (just for you!). I think this is my favorite year yet!!
Oh, and here’s the official show guide: 2012 Northwest Flower & Garden Show – Show Guide.
Disclaimer: I was invited to attend the press tour this morning because I’m going to post frequently from the show AND I only work a couple blocks away. Yes, I do have a real job. I was also provided tickets to attend the show this year but would’ve purchased them anyway – I even took vacation days from my ‘real job’ so I could attend even more garden show fun.
The Northwest Flower & Garden Show has always kicked of my gardening season. I get inspired by the display gardens and seminars and purchase new plants and art from vendors. I look forward to it every year. Read more
