A Few of My Favorite Things at this Year's Northwest Flower & Garden Show

By
Real Estate Agent with Realty Executives -BRIO

Besides the Display Gardens....that would be the Marketplace

Shopping or browsing at the Northwest Flower & Garden Show  ( NWF&GS )  in the Marketplace is one of the highlights of my annual visits. 

I always make sure to visit my "old friends" and meet some new ones after seeing the display gardens, so off to see the  Ravenna Gardens booth!

Every year I enjoy seeing what beautiful garden things they will have to tempt me....

The Chocolate Flower Farm - Edible Chocolate Garden Display

The Chocolate Flower Farm which SMELLED wonderfully from the candles, I succumbed and bought!

Stone Manor Lighting - Marketplace Display at the Northwest Flower & Garden Show

Stone Manor Lighting which had a wonderful display, very moody with it's twilight atmosphere.

The Home & Garden Art LLC in Ballard featured whimsy with it's scrap metal sculptured animals. 

On the Skybridge straddling over Pike Street by a couple of stories are the Container Garden Displays, great place to get some ideas for a patio or balcony garden.  Here are a couple of my favorites.

Deborah, I'd come out of there broke!  I love those beautiful plants and while I have too many to begin with, I always buy more :)  What a beautiful day you spent there!

Whoopsie everyone, I am sorry I did not get back earlier to reply!  I lwould ike to say that I was working on my garden (which is what I wanted to do) but I just was caught up in doing other "stuff"! 

Hi Carol, Thank you, I am glad you enjoyed them!

Hi Kirk, sorry to hear that you missed it this year...remember, there is always next year!

Hi Charlie, Thank you and happy to help you off to a good morning!

Hi Courtney, Thank you!  I was thrilled to be write a post for the show!

Hi Carol, Yes, it is challenging to NOT buy every wonderful plant and garden ornaments, my weakness!  The past few years a wonderful sculpture artist is there who makes these enormous (9 foot high) whimsical "pinwheels" made from stainless steel, handblown glass, gears and more.  Someday I hope to be able to afford to buy one....they are about $7,000!  Okay, so this year I bought a candle....LOL!

Hi Gwen, Thank you!  I hope you do get to go next year!

Hi Melissa, Thank you and you are welcome!

Hi Deborah, I LOVE Seattle too, and I am glad you do too!  Oh Spring is definitly on it's way, on Feb 6th I was showing a house to some clients, and I noticed how mild the weather was and that the birds were singing their spring songs....Spring is really here!

Hi Steve, there are always great water features in the displays, and Lucca Statuary sells really beautiful fountains and other concrete garden ornaments.  The dark patina on much of their statuary really adds to the feeling of time and age in the garden!

Deborah, I LOVE your photos. So many beautiful flowers. This is such a great area - though I'll admit after having lived in Olympia many years ago - it rains a lot! ;-)  Never could keep my hair from curling.

Hi Teri, thank you!  It is a lot more humid here than in Mesa...for me it is just enough humidity to "fluff" my hair.  :  )

Deborah, I did go to the Philadelphia Flower Show several years ago.  It was by far the most elaborate flower & garden show I've ever been to.

I use to live in a place on the coast called Aberdeen located in Grays Harbor County,  with all the rain the Northwest has you should be able to grow almost anything.   I love the area, there is so much to see in the City, I know plants have a hard time growing underground, have you seen the older part of Seattle underground?   Another one of those world spots that most people never get the opportunity to visit.    Your pictures want me to go out and start taking some of our more colorful areas..... thank you

I've always liked little whit elights in the trees.  Even wrapped around the trunks like they were in Florida when I lived there.

I often wish towns that have them up at Christmas would leave them there year round.
