Dreaming of Spring

Sky Nursery - Shoreline

This is the Northwest Flower Show week. Time to start thinking of Spring and our garden. We have had cold icy snowy weather this week also. But Friday dawned sunny. It was deceptive - from the house it looked warm but the minute you stepped out of the house the icy windy chilled you to the bone. Our friend J from Spokane is visiting. G and J went on Friday but I stayed home and worked.

Today it was snowy but that didn't stop us. It was time to go nursery shopping. We headed north first to My Garden Nursery in Mill Creek. G used to work there over 30 years ago when it was Wileywood Nursery. We loved the bright displays with the wonderful garden statues and cheerful colors. Next up Sky Nursery where G works. They were busy in the new greenhouses. They were full of colorful potted bulbs, wonderful winter garden plants such as hellebore and sarcococca. I went out to check out the nursery which was full of still-asleep roses waiting to go to new homes. Last up was Swansons where we met up with J's sister for an excellent lunch in the greenhouse cafe.

We shopped the seeds, early vegetables and lovely potted plants and dreamed of Spring. It will be here soon.

Looking at these gives me an even worse case of spring fever. Great photos!

Hi Marta, beautiful photos. I love the cool Garden Displays. And you're right the statues in that display are so cute. Thanks so much for sharing. It's been cold here too.

Be still my heart!
