The Northwest Flower & Garden show has been a success!  My garden ‘A World Away On The Na Pali Coast’ won a silver medal and we had fantastic conversations of all types through out the show.  In addition to being a garden creator I was also a garden seminar speaker.  My talk on Carpet Gardening was well received if not a little on the short side.  For those of you that weren’t able to make it to the show here is a quick tour of the garden for you to enjoy!

A Northwest Tropical Garden

Our silver medal winning garden is a Northwest Tropical Garden with many of the plants seen here hardy in our area.

A favorite this Helleborus ‘Snow Frills’ pairs nicely with Helleborus ‘Snow Fever’ (pictured to the right).

This ‘live edge’ deck caused quite a stir.  Made out of custom milled cedar planks.

These little Fritillaria, or checked lilly, were also crowd favorites showing up in many other gardens at the show.
