John and I went to our first Northwest Flower and Garden Show on Saturday. I was sure we’d only be there an hour but stayed for 2+. In fact, I could have poked around for a little longer, but opted not to torture the husband who isn’t as much of a plant freak as myself. It was pretty amazing and I will definitely go back next year.
One interesting highlight for me was the discovery that they SERVE COCKTAILS. Yes. That you can walk around with. Like an adult person. Unfortunately we arrived around 10am so we opted out of day-drinking. But had I known about the liquid party favors we might have planned differently.
Other highlights included the plant market where vendors sold all manner of plants (which I bought of course), the vintage market (with curated antiques) and the stunning display gardens. We didn’t attend any of the many seminars or do any of the tastings, but maybe next year!
