A very nice show this year but seems it gets smaller every year. Less vendors selling plants and more stuff related vendors. Here's some highlights from the show.

I agree, many fewer plant sellers this year. still a welcome sight after the gray and rain.

Lynn, the bulbs in the grass may have been a variety of Scilla, maybe close to this.

I did like that one, and also liked the large moon. no one garden was a total "wow" for me this year though.

The moon and owl garden was great but still love the one with the blue doors. Miamillion do you have pictures, would love to see any you would like to share? I wonder if we passed each other?

I wish I did have pictures, don't ask me why I did not..
I was there Friday, and heard Thursday was a little less crowded so may try that next year.

Lake Stevens. I was there both Thursday and Friday, believe it was about the same. On Friday we did it backwards shopped the big room over the sky bridge then did the gardens. Was so much better with the crows, got to see so much more. Try that next year.

I am in awe. I have never seen such displays. Thank you so much for posting the pictures. I was thinking of going down for the PNW Dahlia show in September. We miss so much of those sort of displays up here.

Thanks for the photos - I didn't go this year but enjoyed seeing it from afar.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
