Today was a first...I got to go to the Seattle Flower and Garden Show. Wow ~ if that doesn't make you want to start gardening...nothing will. I had to laugh at myself because I got the most excited by the various samples of compost and mulch. I found myself asking the sales reps if I could touch it. Not even the jewlery vendors could get me that excited. I went with my mom who LOVED looking at each and every orchid. She walked away with some great orchids at a great price... I even got one from her!
I got 6 free packets of seeds, 2 free pansy plants, lettuce start, an orchid (from my mom). I also picked up a cool self watering multi-layer pot that I think I am going to grow herbs in. And...there is a mother's day gift that I picked up for a very special mom as well.
My mom and favorite youngest daughter getting organized ~ matching up what free item/coupon goes with what vendor...God forbid we don't get those free gardening gloves or bracelets! By the way...does my kid ever wear any other shirt????
Cool idea ~ using a wood pallet to grow herbs and lettuce. Just tightly secure landscaping material to the back, add some dirt and seeds and a pallet full of food will grow!
Such a cool idea!
Flowers by my front door. I am not a real fan of primroses but when I was at Sunnyside Nursery I noticed these cool double flowered primroses ~ so cute! Even better, buy 10 or more and they only costs 99 cents each. It is starting to look a little like spring now!
