It's not planting season yet, so plant sales at the garden show are not the main attraction, but it is an opportunity to find some new releases and some more unusual or specialized plants.
Succulents are very big these days. These are the more exotic types, not the common hens and chicks we all have growing in our gardens year round. These tender beauties need to be babied indoors or in a greenhouse to survive our winters. Nevertheless, I find them fascinating.
These shoe planters are filled with hardy succulents. Pretty cute.
Art from tree prunings.
Christianson's Nursery, in the Skagit Valley, is always a stop on our list when we visit the tulip festival in April.
Hellebores are blooming now, and it seems there are new varieties every year.
The lily bulb vendors manage to force enough lily blooms to entice you with their scent.
Finally, a feature added a few years ago, is the Vintage Market, full of old stuff with a lot of charm, some of it even garden related.
A new use for an old tool chest.
Rusty old garden tool to decorate your garden shed
Not sure about these Garden Glove Tussie Mussies, but they are cute.
And that concludes my NWFGS posts. Hope you enjoyed the show.
