Snow and The Garden show

It was 26 degrees and snowy when we got up this morning, but I didn't have time to go outside and play in it. We were in a hurry to get the car down the hill and parked in the light rail lot before it filled up with commuters. I took these photos from the front porch and through the windows about 7:30. Yes, it's daylight now at 7:30!
We had a great day at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show at the convention center in downtown Seattle. The light rail deposited us only three blocks from the center, and we arrived a few minutes before it opened at 9:00. We had the place practically to ourselves for a while and took advantage of that to view the beautiful display gardens.

I don't take my camera to these shows because I don't want to be weighted down, and I don't want to be one of those people who others always have to wait for while they set up their shot, usually full of people and not plants.

We attended a great seminar and shopped the plant and garden accessories markets, and yes, we came home with a few treasure, plus lots on inspiration for this coming garden season.

We had dinner downtown before heading back in the train. Now it's time to put my feet up.

  1. I think plans are for the train to reach my neck of the woods in 2022.

  2. Strange to see the snowy pictures in black and white (naturally). I don't miss the snow in New York. We in Hawaii are truly spoiled by the constant colors evident no matter what season it is. I like that.

  5. Even here in Northern California they say we may have snow down to sea level. I doubt that will happen but the hard freeze they are predicting will likely come and the plants that had already decided it is spring will not be happy.

  6. Uh, Linda, do something to stop that snow! It is really pretty, but we are ready to head home but it is obviously not time yet!
