Zombies, Abutilons and Air Plants! NWFGS Photos

Just wanted to share a few of my favorite garden bits and bobs from the Northwest Flower and Garden Show. I have to admit, I was fairly overwhelmed by all the awesomeness.

This garden was designed by a mother-daughter team, I love the concept of garden-sharing and also the plants were gorgeous. Take a look at that witch hazel in the foreground of the first picture. Also, pretty sure I too should be outfitting my garden for the zombie apocalypse. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Um, chandelier of Tillandsias anyone? I fell in love with living walls all over again here.

IMG_4641 It was a really fun show for plant geeks this year. Vance Lumsden and Judith Jones really brought it with their garden, “the Art of Upcycling”.

Vanca said the greenhouse was made out of all salvaged sliding glass doors. Also, how awesome is the potting bench made of an ironing board? I’m pretty sure this will be my potting bench in my next garden. Now for the plant geek part, these ladies take it to a whole ‘nother level. I could have spent the entire time just drooling over the plants in this garden.

Vanca said that the abutilons make their own crosses in Judith’s greenhouse, om nom nom.ย  Then there was the ferns! Asplenium anitquum ‘Cristatum’ anyone? These ladies created a garden that showcases beautiful design and awesome plants. Way to go!

Alright, I’ve got to dash to work. But tomorrow, I promise to share a few more pictures from the Sky bridge etc.

Happy NWFGS all!

  1. Erin! Super great website, blog, writing and photography!!! You’re a natural, fer shure.
    Please be sure to join Garden Writers Association. By the way, since everything that can happen, has happened since Tuesday afternoon, I won’t be able to make the social meeting/reception Thursday evening. I believe it starts at 6 until about 9 or 930ish, room 2AB. Great people, sometimes cool books/gifts. Wine and light food…you can’t go wrong. Plus you can meet Big Name folks. I don’t recall if they have a list at the door, but tell them you’re taking my place. Shouldn’t be a problem. Hats (gardening, of course) off to YOU! I’m looking forward to seeing your name in literary lights!

    • Wow thanks so much Jacqui! That really means a whole lot coming from you. I’m sending you a tweet right now to say thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚
