When we make the trip north to the Skagit Valley, our first stop is this wonderful nursery, right there in the middle of the valley.
So many great plants in a setting full of wonderful old things.
It's edelweiss! I bought one, and had the song stuck in my head for a while.
If you're going to buy angelica, better do it soon, before it gets too big for your car. This one is about to explode.
It's hard not to get carried away here.
Not long after the first spikes emerge from the soil, Hostas burst and unfurl amazingly.
I didn't buy any gifts. I already had this guy.
Weird plants are fascinating to me.
Tom bought this wondrefully red geranium.
We did not buy a gentian. They do not survive in our yard.
I love the Rusty Bird creations, but we already have lots.
The old schoolhouse contained an art show.
I had to show you these features in a restroom in an outbuilding: a level for a grab bar and a faucet TP holder.
About two hours later we checked out. We weren't going to buy anything. Ha!
It was 1:00 when we actually headed to the tulip gardens.
