All Shades of Green—-A Plant Perspective

Building the Northwest Flower and Garden Show


Today some students from our school (LWIT)  helped build the display gardens at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show.  It was fascinating to see the gardens created from the ground up as 15 foot bamboo and mature trees and massive stumps and boulders were brought in and carefully placed.  Today was a day of building.  Walls, patios and ponds were constructed. Yards and yards of mulch and sawdust was spread.  Huge trucks and forklifts were beeping and buzzing around.  Drills and hammers were going as the gardens began to take shape.  We were just beginning to put a few plants out in the garden I helped at.  The work goes on until Tuesday and then the show opens to the public Wednesday morning.  A lot can happen in four days!
