The show must go on

...except when it won't. This year is supposed to be the last Northwest Flower and Garden Show. So of course, we had to attend. Even though Mr. B says there must certainly be more, since they're obviously making money ($20 a day, per person ~ whew!)

My city is beautiful, isn't it? Had to pause for a shot of the impressive glass dome over the street at the Convention Center.

Another pause at the happy fountain just past the entrance.

This was my favorite garden display at the show this year. Tuscany...a dream of mine. I couldn't quite capture in the picture the gorgeous, fragrant rosemary, lavender, and succulents around the outside of the stone wall.

I was just intrigued by the collection of antique Asian buckets in this vendor's corner. My kind of rustic beauty. One year they offered a round, wooden "bathtub" for sale ~ I could almost feel the steam...

And finally, my little blooms expending some energy in the children's garden.

Hi Michele,

That looked like it had been a fun outing! :)

I like the flowers in the last shot best. They did win the Best of Show, right? :~}
