I am a blogger who writes about things that bring delight - food, design, travel, garden, crafts, sugar, ribbon etc. I've publish over 2,000 posts these last 7 years, all with my original photography. I have also written 3 books on Moments of Delight, Finding Delight and Paris: Delight in the City of Light
- My rose garden boasts 19 hybrid tea and English roses, with 2 more on order from David Austin.
- Most years my Dad and I plant strawberry pots full of herbs - we tuck herbs like Pineapple Sage or Chocolate Mint into each opening.
- I make business card cases out of Renee's Garden seed packets.
- I've visited lavender farms, dahlia barns and the American Orchid Society
- I eat grow, buy and decorate my baked goods with edible flowers and buy candied violet petals whenever I see them
- And I love every flower from hydrangeas to lily of the valley and back -flower arranging in unusual vases is my strength.
I am a suburban gardener from Southeastern Michigan and I'm suddenly spending a lot of time in Seattle and the Pacific Northwest.
I probably love a lot of things that you love and after years of hearing about the Northwest Flower and Garden Show, I had the chance to go - and with only a week's notice! I wanted to get the most out of this exciting chance and after 5 hours coming the aisles, I feel like I got a good handle on the show.
My husband will be working in Seattle a lot this year and I'll be coming with him. After a few great trips last year, I will have the chance to dig even deeper into the subjects I love in a brand new setting.
This week I will have individual blog posts about all of the things I enjoyed at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show. I was impressed by the sheer volume of vendors selling not only garden tools and implements, but also plants, indoor/outdoor artwork, garden design elements, water features as well as clothing, hats and clogs that make a day outdoors more pleasant. Stick with me and I'll fill you in.
