|A photo of my backyard - I wish!! This was|
one of the award winning display gardens
at the show. Loved the water feature, the
chandelier and the stone edged terraces.
|The Art of Zen, a wonderful garden with|
bold colours, large stones, a unique
water feature and classic statuary. I also
loved the living room on this structure.
|Called 'A Conduction of Vigorous Immersion', this|
garden was designed by a collection of Seattle artists. An
eye-catching combination of art, living walls
and light. Note the glowing jellyfish dangling
in the air.
|Asparagus!! And lettuce with brassicas..|
|A soothing woodland vingette with early|
bulbs, moss and natural stones.
|So many great elements for the garden. This booth offered|
rustic garden sheds and accessories.
|Pitchforks made from espaliered trees!|
I really wanted one of these - not a great
carry-on for the airplane though!
|Grow food indoors all year long. Interesting|
upright growing towers. More to come
|Another look at these towers.|
|So much garden art! these were crafted|
|A twist on a bottle tree! Whimsical|
|Quite the size range of these pieces. From about|
1-foot diameter to 4 feet. Wonderful
in a shaded garden.
|Many of these were lit up with strings of light bulbs.|
I was very tempted by the vibrant colours and fun designs
of these metal pieces!
|See the one that says 'dude!!'.. awesome!|
|Seattle is famous for the Chihuly Garden and|
Glass art experience and therefore glass
is a common feature in the gardens here. This booth
sold wonderful glass garden art in many designs, colours
and sizes. These funky mushrooms were so fun!
|A wider shot of the above booth.|
|Love how they grouped their products|
|Yet more glass garden art.|
|I love my gnomes and these guys were|
celebrating the Seattle Seahawks
|Another repetitious theme at the show was|
a love of succulents. I'm now obsessed!
A variety of plants and vertical and
|A wider view of the succulent booth.|
|How many can I take home??????|
|Just one of many aisles of garden art! It was hard to resist|
buying one of everything.
|Flowering ferns - hardy to zone 6.. wanted to give these a try.|
|More plants. So. many. plants.|
|Did I mention there were seed companies there too?|
|And cold frames! About 4 or 5 of the exhibitors had|
cold frame or season extending structures.
|Dahlia love! Varieties galore - what a variety of flower|
colours, sizes and shapes.
|A small garden by a Vancouver company that spotlighted succulents|
and their unique flat containers. Very trendy!
|Last, but not least, the Subaru garden in the middle|
of the show featured edibles!!
