Pictures from the Northwest Garden Show

Today I went to my first garden show. At first I thought I didn't like it because it was too cheesy. Then I realized I didn't like it because it was too tasteful.

There's something both cheesy and boringly tasteful about seeing all these high-end garden displays set up inside a convention center.

For some reason I just don't like seeing trees displayed as houseplants. I don't know. Something about this whole thing just bugs me.

The plant market section is a little better, though too crowded with jewelry and children's hats and things. Heaths and Heathers came out.

I especially love these fiery ones. They're open on March 1 -- maybe it's worth a drive out to Shelton to go get some of these. (I'm not going to try to carry home flats of plants on the horrible 36 today.)

Sorry to disappoint, but those are all the garden show photos I want to post.

But I will show you how our sedum are filling in at home!
