Giant Heart of Living Succulent Plants: Robin Stockwell of Succulent Gardens at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show

It was this 14-foot tall living wall of succulents arranged in the shape of a heart that welcomed visitors to the 27th annual Northwest Flower and Garden Show in Seattle, Washington. 

A masterpiece made from 15,000 living plants, the heart was created by Robin Stockwell. After the show has ended, this lovely display will live on as a garden at Succulent Gardens in Castroville, California. 

This was my first time to the show and this giant heart certainly relayed how I felt - lucky to be there and absolutely in love with gardening. The 2015 Northwest Flower and Garden show was held February 11-15 and in a nod to Valentine's Day, the overall theme for this year's show was "Romance Blossoms."  

Because of the sheer volume of content and have-to-share photographs, I've decided to divide my blog posts and highlight my favorite aspects of this year's show over the next few days. Enjoy! #NWFGS
