At the Garden Show

Last week my husband and I joined the fabulous Garden Spot Nursery on their tour bus to the Northwest Flower and Garden Show. As a group, we got in early to the display garden area, so were able to see them before the herds of people. The theme this year was A Floral Symphany.

Here are a few of our favorites from the show:

A hanging garden made from a pallet and a cool way to write on the garden wall.

We loved this mosaic blue bird garden art! 

Music cut from non-skid material for the deck.

This antique harp was part of one display. The case itself dated back to 1893. 

Glowing flower pots... wouldn't this be fun to help light the deck at night?  

Clever! A piano bar for the deck! This was part of the container gardens display. 

One of the 100 year+ old trees displayed this year. It was just beginning to bud.  

It was a fun long day, and tiring after several hours wandering about. Luckily for us, the wonderful folks at Garden Spot gave us snacks and a glass of wine for the ride home. Now that's the way to do a tour. :)
