Northwest Flower and Garden Show

NW Flower and Garden Show 2008

It is the time again - for the flower show. Time to dream and plan for this years garden. Our friend from Spokane joined us again this year. We got there about 10am on Friday and it was already crowded.

We were disappointed this year. The exhibits have been more focused on patio design than the flowers. We did enjoy the display by Fancy Fronds as we did last year. It had a good sprinkling of tender perennials and interesting mixture of black and white plants. Otherwise, it was so-so.

Of course, we did pick up a few plants. G got three new orchids, a couple of arisemas and four epimediums.
