I happen to be the type of person who could probably kill plants just by looking at them, but every year I like to visit the Northwest Flower and Garden show and pretend that I could possibly be a garden whisperer and this keeps me totally happy all spring. This Northwest flower show is absolutely spectacular and I can’t believe how many over the top flower displays fit into the convention center.
I am always amazed at how this show transforms the Washington State Convention Center into a floral paradise (I could go just to take in the beautiful fragrance alone and be pretty content) and if you have a chance to go this weekend (February 13-15th 2015) this is a little taste of what you’ll see:
I totally want the hanging backyard tent more than anything else right now. Are you into gardening? And can you believe the spring we’re having so far in the pacific northwest? I saw some cherry blossoms blooming when I ran through the neighborhood the other day and I think a tree in my backyard is starting to burst with pink flowers too! I’d love to hear if you’re going to attend the Northwest Flower show too!
(PS. I didn’t have my kids with me when I went, I was blissfully alone, but there is a pretty cool kids’ garden here and it might be fun to dress the kids up a little and get some neat pictures with whimsical floral backgrounds.)
